They have the venue, the jerseys and on Wednesday night, the Vegas Golden Knights saw most of its roster take shape in the 2017 NHL expansion draft from T-Mobile Arena in the newest franchise’s future home. 

The NHL’s 31st franchise selected one unprotected player from each of the existing franchises as they were required to take at least 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalies.
