Vegas Golden Knights ship defenseman Marc Methot to Dallas

Updated June 26, 2017 - 7:16 pm

The shedding of players from the Golden Knights’ expansion draft roster continued Monday as defenseman Marc Methot was traded to the Dallas Stars.

In return, the Knights received Dallas’ second-round pick in the 2020 entry draft and goaltender Dylan Ferguson, who the Stars selected in the seventh round Saturday (No. 194 overall). By moving Methot, the Knights will save $4.9 million toward their salary cap.

Methot, 32, who was taken from the Ottawa Senators in last week’s expansion draft, had 12 points for the Senators last season. The Knights selected center Cody Eakin as an expansion pick from the Stars.

Methot becomes the third defenseman to be traded. Trevor van Riemsdyk and David Schlemko were dealt last Thursday to Carolina and Montreal, respectively.

Ferguson, 18, played for the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League last season. In 31 games, he had a goals-against average of 2.74 and a save percentage of .922.
