When Marc-Andre Fleury takes his seat on the Pittsburgh Penguins’ bench Monday night for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, it will likely mark the beginning of the end of the goaltender’s time with the organization. With the expansion draft on the horizon, Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford can only protect one of his netminders.
After his first year with the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires, Sergachev was drafted ninth overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. In year two, he came away with the Memorial Cup title, as his team defeated the Erie Otters in the final last night. In an on-ice interview with RDS, Sergachev admitted that he’s hoping to make the leap to the NHL with the Canadiens next season.
In the latest issue of The Hockey News, they have Vegas selecting Antti Raanta from the Rangers in the expansion draft. There is a belief that Vegas will acquire Marc-Andre Fleury but The Hockey News instead has Fleury being traded to Calgary. They wrote later in the issue that Raanta is "cheap, a short investment, still in his prime and often outplayed 'The King." Great target for the Golden Knights. The other goalies for Vegas, according to The Hockey News, could be Phillipe Grubauer and Larent Brossoit. Other players of note that they have heading to Vegas include Michael Del Zotto and Carl Hagelin. For more on the expansion draft, click HERE. For more on Raanta's potential future, click HERE.
