Devils on the clock with No. 1 pick in NHL draft

Devils on the clock with No. 1 pick in NHL draft

"They're going to be pleasantly surprised". "It was a summer tournament, but it's pretty much always summer. So, we're really happy with that".

Glass is obviously hoping to change that.

The Golden Knights had three first round selections in the NHL Entry Draft picking two forwards and one defenseman. Neither had Brannstrom, whose limited knowledge of the city came from watching the comedy, The Hangover.

“I think this still will be proven to be a good draft”, Shero said. But it's this weekend where the team will really be built.

Cody Glass' father, Jeff Glass, speaks about his son being selected as the first pick of the Vegas Golden Knights at the NHL Entry Draft in Chicago, Ill., on Friday, June 23, 2017.

Prior to his breakout season, Glass had not been projected as a first-round pick. Suzuki exploded with the Owen Sound Attack this season scoring 45 goals and 96 points in 65 goals.

The picks were announced in four separate segments, during which trades between the Golden Knights and other teams were announced as well.

"I think there's a lot of pressure to it", Glass, who called the Golden Knights jersey one of the top-3 in the league, said of being the first pick.

"I've never been there, but I've heard fun things about it", he said. "Words can't describe how I feel right now". Seven teams opted for the latter approach; one of them, the Islanders, were the only team to protect five defensemen.

First-round picks always come with larger-than-life expectations.

The draft did see a record number of Finnish first rounders (six) as well as the highest ever pick from France, Alexandre Texier.

Throw in the fact that Las Vegas is anything but your usual hockey market and it wasn't just about finding a player that could shoot and score.

Minnesota's plethora of blueliners made Matt Dumba, 22, and Marco Scandella, 27, available unless the Wild is willing to fork something over, and 25-year-old right-shooting Trevor van Riemsdyk from Chicago seems ticketed for the Golden Knights.

It was a lot to ask, especially when you considered that this was an underwhelming draft that many scouts and general managers believed had no defined order or generation type talents.

The crowd at the United Center cheered again when the Blackhawks got back on the clock, and general manager Stan Bowman played to the roaring fans when he brought out captain Jonathan Toews and star winger Patrick Kane to announce their selection of Finnish defenseman Henri Jokiharu.

"I didn't have a team to look after this year, so I could find time to go out and watch players and be involved in it". "I'm so thrilled. When I interviewed with Vegas at the combine - it was my best interview".

It allowed McPhee to maybe take chances. Brannstrom was a terror in global tournaments, Suzuki was one of the top goal-scorers in the OHL (and the best possession forward in the whole draft) and Glass was one of the top point producers in the WHL this season.

“Its a hard draft, ” said McPhee, the franchises GM. Among the added selections were Nick Suzuki (13th overall), a centre from London, Ont., who finished fifth in the Ontario Hockey League with 96 points last season, and Erik Brannstrom (15th), a Swedish defenceman who styles his game after Shayne Gostisbehere - the runner-up to Panarin for the league's top rookie in 2016. "An elite centre with exceptional hockey sense", said McPhee.

That's a good thing for you people who enjoy drama. It's going to be a challenge. "It was a fairly easy decision on my part, and I'm excited to be here". NY got the No. 7 pick in a trade with Arizona and selected center Lias Andersson, whose father Niklas played in the league.

Glass is a skilled centerman who has shown vast improvement in his game over the past year. He traded a two and a three for Palmieri, a bottom-six forward in Anaheim who responded with 53 goals in the next two seasons.
