The Vegas Golden Knights might select Erik Haula from the Minnesota Wild in the upcoming expansion draft, according to the Minneapolis Tribune's Michael Russo.
It would be an interesting decision because the Wild left Eric Staal, Matt Dumba and Marco Scandella unprotected. Of course, it's entirely possible that Wild GM Chuck Fletcher is giving the Golden Knights some type of compensation to pass on that trio of players. Haula, 26, had 15 goals and 26 points in 72 games last season. He's scheduled to become a restricted free agent on July 1st.
