Vegas Golden Knights Claim Ryan Carpenter


The Vegas Golden Knights have claimed Ryan Carpenter off of waivers, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

Carpenter was placed on waivers yesterday by the San Jose Sharks.

It’s a curious move for Las Vegas who have 23 players on their active roster as of right now and do not have a clear need for Carpenter.

Las Vegas has been scouting Carpenter since before the NHL expansion draft but weren’t able to select him in the draft because San Jose a protection slot on him, according to TSN insider Pierre LeBrun.
