Add another name to the roster in Vegas as George McPhee and the Golden Knights have announced that they’ve selected Chris Thorburn from the Winnipeg Jets in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft.

The draft, currently ongoing as part of the NHL Awards show in Las Vegas, stipulates that teams may only protect a maximum of 10 skaters and 1 goaltender and evidently Thorburn didn’t make the cut for the Jets. 

In 750 career NHL games, Thorburn has scored 52 goals and 127 points. In 2016-17, he produced three goals and four points in 64 games.
