NHL Expansion Draft takes David Perron from St. Louis
LAS VEGAS - The Vegas Golden Knights named David Perron to its roster for the 2017-2018 season Wednesday at the NHL awards. The former St. Louis Blues forward rounds out the Knights inaugural 30-man roster.
The Blues drafted Perron in 2007, but a trade landed him with Edmonton, Pittsburgh and Anaheim before he returned to St. Louis in July 2016.
The 29-year-old forward signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with St. Louis in 2016, so his absence will open up room in the Blues' salary cap for the 2017-2018 season.
