With the NHL expansion draft less than a month away, The Buffalo News has linked Matt Moulson as one of the players Vegas might target.

Vegas GM George McPhee knows Moulson very well, as he is the godfather to Moulson's wife, Alicia. Moulson might just be the veteran forward McPhee is looking for to mentor some of the younger players the Golden Knights will draft, something Moulson did well with Jack Eichel in Buffalo. Going to Vegas would likely put Moulson in a top-six role and back on fantasy radars going into next season. Despite bottom line minutes for most of the season, Moulson is considered as being somewhat of a power play specialist with 11 power play goals on the year, good for 15th most in the NHL. Sabres fans will be hoping family ties are enough for Vegas to draft Moulson, seeing as the 33-year-old carries a $5 million cap-hit for the next two seasons.

Matt Moulson might be a buyout candidate for the Sabres if he isn't claimed by the Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

It's very likely that Buffalo will choose to expose Moulson because he has two seasons left on his five-year, $25 million contract. If he stays with Sabres going into the 2017-18 season then Moulson will hope to get a larger role than the one he had under former head coach Dan Bylsma. He averaged just 11:36 of ice time per contest and posted 32 points in 81 games.

Apr 2 - 6:57 PM
