The franchises final selection in the first round was 17-year-old Swedish defenseman Erik Brannstrom, who plans to learn the National Hockey League game from a wide variety of veterans on the Golden Knights roster.
The fireworks finally died down. Lonzo Ball, left, achieved his dream of being drafted by the LA Lakers, going second overall. It also has two selections in the fifth and sixth. There were more in the immediate aftermath with the Oilers finally parting with Jordan Eberle and the Blackhawks flipping 2016 Calder Trophy victor Artemi Panarin to Columbus for Brandon Saad. "Obviously, it's an historic day, and to be part of the Vegas organization is unbelievable". Also dealing out defensive staple Niklas Hjalmarsson, the Hawks are trying to bolster their roster after two consecutive first round exits.
Unlike the past two years, when Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews went No. 1 overall and immediately had a huge impact on their new teams, there doesn't appear to be a transcendent talent at the top of the draft. And that is what this time of year - or any time of year in the business of sport - is all about: The marketing of hope.
Prior to his breakout season, Glass had not been projected as a first round pick.
Despite missing much of last season with a groin injury, Patrick had 20 goals and 46 points in 33 games with Brandon of the Western Hockey League.
Maksim Zhukov of Russian Federation became the first ever goalie drafted by the organization at 127th overall.
Glass was selected by the expansion Vegas Golden Knights with their first-ever pick Friday night, going No. 6 overall as part of a parade of forwards at the top of the National Hockey League draft.

Iran gears up for annual anti-Israel 'Quds Day' demonstrations
Larijani called Israel the "mother of terrorism" and said in the "20th century, there was no event more ominous than the birth of the Zionist regime".
The Philadelphia Flyers then grabbed Nolan Patrick at No. 2. The Devils GM liked what he heard during a lengthy sit-down with Hischier in Switzerland and was impressed with how the potential top-line centre guided the young Halifax Mooseheads to the post-season.
"I think this still will be proven to be a good draft", Shero said. "It's an important thing and you want to be sure".
Vegas selected center Cody Glass of the Portland Winterhawks during Thursday's draft in Chicago with the No. 6 overall pick. He more than tripled his output in just one season.
Shero wasn't even certain that Hischier, a rookie in the Quebec Major Junior League, would even play in the NHL in the 2017-18 season.
"At the end of the day I don't care if I go one, two, three, four, like it doesn't matter to me", said Patrick, who threw out a ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday's Cubs game at Wrigley Field.
