William Carrier has been chosen by the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

The Golden Knights will also get a sixth-round pick from Buffalo for picking Carrier. The Sabres wanted to protect backup goaltender Linus Ullmark, so they added some incentive to take Carrier. He registered eight points in 41 games with Buffalo in 2016-17.

William Carrier is available to the Vegas Golden Knights and it's believed that he will be taken in the expansion draft.

It's being speculated that Sabres GM Jason Botterill has a deal in place to protect backup goaltender Linus Ullmark, so Buffalo exposed Carrier to be selected rather than oft-injured veteran Tyler Ennis. Carrier skated in 41 NHL games in 2016-17 and he posted eight points. The 22-year-old has speed and can play a physical game, which could interest Vegas.
