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.
Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban was profiled on “ESPN E:60” last weekend in a segment that looked into his personality, his split with the Montreal Canadiens, his experience as a black player in hockey and everything else that comes along with being P.K. Subban. “I got a lot of hate tweets from Montreal, and I didn’t know what was up,” said Scott, in an interview with TSN 690 on Monday. First, he said the interview from ESPN was “like a year and a half ago, maybe two years ago,” and that he didn’t expect it would be aired during this segment on Subban.
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.
