The picks are in and the roster is set as the Las Vegas Golden Knights, the NHL‘s 31st team is set to begin play for the 2017-18 season.

Headlining the Vegas roster is forward James Neal whom the Golden Knights selected via the Predators roster and starting goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury from the Penguins. Vegas was also provided a number of draft picks in an effort from other teams to steer the Knight’s away from certain players who went unprotected. This included the Sabres trading a 2017 sixth-round pick to Vegas in an effort to prevent Linus Ullmark from being selected. This was according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Here’s the entire roster via theScore:
