To provide some context, Nathan Graviteh of SDPN gave a quick recap of the Vegas Golden Knights' expansion draft.
To this post, Marc Dumont replied:
Interesting! So, Dumont revealed that at the time, shortly after the Vegas Golden Knights' expansion draft, the Montreal Canadiens tried to finalize a trade to retrieve Alexei Emelin.
Ten days after being selected by Vegas in the expansion draft, Emelin was traded by the Golden Knights to the Nashville Predators for a 3rd round pick in 2019.
Emelin eventually played 86 games with the Preds (9 points and 40 penalty minutes) before leaving for the KHL.
He has been playing in the KHL since 2018.
