A lot of crazy stuff has happened in the last few weeks in the NHL. From the expansion draft to the entry draft to today's UFA market opening, we've seen a level of action that's not seen often in the league. A lot of guys have changed cities along the way, but one guy didn't get the chance to see the Vegas skyline for too long.
Alexei Emelin, former Canadiens picked by Vegas during the expansion draft, has been moved again to the Nashville Predators in exchange of a 3rd round pick.
Emelin is known for his physical, sometimes borderline style. He's had a lot of huge hits in Montreal through his career and he will now join one of the most reputable defensive squad in the NHL. This new beginning in a Cup contender might be his true chance to glory. He will also rejoin former teammate P.K. Subban in the process.
