Columbus has a deal with Vegas to steer them away from picking Josh Anderson, Joonas Korpisalo and Jack Johnson in the expansion draft.

It's believed that the Golden Knights will receive a first-round draft pick (No. 24 overall) and a prospect who isn't Pierre-Luc Dubois or Sonny Milano. Vegas is expected to select either Matt Calvert or William Karlsson, while taking David Clarkson's contract as well.

Josh Anderson could end up being available for Las Vegas in the expansion draft.

"Anything can happen in the summer," Anderson said earlier this week. "I talk about this group all the time, how close it is together. It's such a young core right now. It's so close on the ice and off the ice. Obviously, I want to stay here. I want to be here a long time. Hopefully, I will be here a long time." The 6-foot-3, 221-pound forward would be an attractive player for the Golden Knights if he is left unprotected. Anderson posted 17 goals, 29 points and 89 penalty minutes in 78 games for Columbus in 2016-17. Columbus will probably do anything they can to keep him on their roster.
