Oscar Lindberg is leaving for Las Vegas

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.
