Arizona Coyotes Lose Teemu Pulkkinen in Expansion Draft

We knew someone had to go, but the pick from the Coyotes is....

Arizona Coyotes v Buffalo Sabres

The Vegas Golden Knights select Teemu Pulkkinen in the Expansion Draft from the Arizona Coyotes.

The Coyotes only had Pulkkinen for a very short time, but he did make an impression. This isn’t a huge loss for the Coyotes going forward as they do have massive depth in the wings currently and with their prospects.

You can read Rose’s great player recap on Pulkkinen here.

Many thought the Coyotes were going to lose either Jamie McGinn or Kevin Connauton to Vegas. With basically the same team coming back (besides the obvious missing pieces), the Coyotes do have the team chemistry thing going for them.

What do you think about this pick for the Golden Knights?
