"A couple of days ago, they threw the interest out there but I didn't think much of it", said Engelland, calling from backstage at the T-Mobile Arena and the scene of the NHL Expansion Draft.
The Golden Knights are required to take exactly one player from each team and a minimum of 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders in the expansion draft.
