A year after Las Vegas was awarded the NHL's 31st franchise, the Golden Knights are in the process of selecting their roster tonight.
There are 30 teams besides the Golden Knights. Vegas gets one player from each.
Below we've got you covered with all the breaking news as the Golden Knights select their inaugural team.
As the night wore down, it was as if it was information overload for much of the crowd.
How good is this Golden Knights roster?
Especially after the team had signed only three players its first 12 months in the league, being overwhelmed with upwards of 30 new players was a startling.
How good this team is probably can't be answered conclusively until it takes the ice in October.
Here at VegasGoldenKnights.com, we'll take you along for the ride.
It was widely rumored, so it wasn't exactly a shock. But the house came down at T-Mobile Arena when Marc-Andre Fleury was announced as our selection fromm the Pittsburgh Penguin.
Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup-winning goalie with the Pittsburgh Penguins who won a championship as recently as last week, is an established 14-year veteran.
He's proven, he's a big-game performer and he's considered one of the better teammates in the sport.
As of tonight, he also became a Golden Knight.
There's been a lot of moving parts as the Golden Knights have continued to accummulate picks in the NHL Entry Draft.
The Entry Draft will be this Friday and Saturday in Chicago.
At this point, we have our own first-round pick, No. 6 overall, on Friday. We also have Winnipeg's first-round pick (13th) and that of the New York Islanders (15th).
We also acquired two former first rounders, defenseman Shea Theodore (Anaheim) and forward Alex Tuch (Minnesota).
In addition to a handful of established NHL players.
It's been an eventful last hour for the Golden Knights.
Between trades, selections, Golden Knights showing up in team jerseys and emotional homecomings, it's been....dare we say, the most eventful hour in team history.
This is a summary of what happened:
Starting the show, we first saw a couple of awards. Connor McDavid took the Ted Lindsay, Patrice Bergeron the Selke and Brent Burns the Norris Trophy as the league's best defenseman.
Then the Golden Knights stepped in by selecting players from nine clubs, ordered in reverse order of their regular-season finish last season.
This segment of the show, however, saw us receive 10 players. Reilly Smith, a forward from the Florida Panthers who has averaged 20 goals the past two season, came in return in a deal that also saw us select Jonathan Marchessault from Florida.
Perhaps worth noting that Smith had his best season (25 goals (in 2015-16) playing for Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant.
The lower bowl of T-Mobile Arena is starting to fill up. The lights are dim, and the mood is light. In just a few minutes, though, the atmosphere of the building will change as Vegas makes its first selections.
