Pierre Edouard Bellemare Heading to Vegas

LAS VEGAS – Bellemare has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, The Athletic’s Craig Custance reports.

Bellemare is quite the underwhelming selection; however, it must be mentioned that the Flyers really didn’t expose anyone valuable in the expansion draft. Considering that Bellemare has little worth to a contending team, it appears likely that he’s staying in Vegas. Bellemare posted all of four goals and eight points despite playing in all 82 regular-season games for Philadelphia this past season. The Frenchman signed a two-year, $1.45 million contract extension in March.
