Oscar Lindberg is leaving for Las Vegas

NHL: New York Rangers at Colorado Avalanche Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

It’s official, the Vegas Golden Knights have selected Oscar Lindberg from the New York Rangers in the expansion draft. The Rangers did not make a trade to protect Antti Raanta or any other kind of deal to influence who Golden Knights general manager George McPhee selected.

Lindberg joins a group of forwards that features names like James Neal, David Perron, Cody Eakin, Teemu Pulkkinen and Jonathan Marchessault on the NHL’s newest team.

Lindberg turns 26-years-old next October. He finishes his Rangers career with 48 points in 134 games. He was originally a second round pick of the Arizona Coyotes.

Good luck in Vegas, Oscar.
