Now it's on Golden Knights general manager George McPhee to spend the next three days poring over the list of available players as the team selects one from each of the NHL's 30 teams.

The 25-year-old has played effectively in a depth role with Chicago for the past two seasons, boosting up veterans like Brent Seabrook and Brian Campbell.
