LAS VEGAS -- Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley was keeping his lips sealed about the players they selected, who will be revealed during the 2017 NHL Awards and NHL Expansion Draft presented by T-Mobile on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN).
But he could not hide his excitement about the roster created by general manager George McPhee and his staff.
"I believe we put together a great team from the net out," Foley said after emerging from his first Board of Governors meeting as an NHL owner. "I believe the fans are really going to like the team and the trades and the draft picks and the prospects that we have.
"It's not just a player per team. In many cases, it might have been two players a team. It might have been an upgraded draft pick plus a player, all kinds of different situations. Sometimes the player might be an unrestricted free agent who may or may not come with us. We've already signed two restricted free agents to contracts with fellows that we drafted that were restricted free agents. So those are done."
