The Mark Methot era is over in Ottawa….according to sources.
The Ottawa native will reportedly be chosen tonight by the new Las Vegas Golden Knights, in their expansion draft.
Methot has been here for the last 5 seasons, with 2 more years on his contract remaining(at $4.9 million a year)
In his time here, he had 14 goals, and 55 assists, for 69 points.
But he was paired with Erik Karlsson, and they duo worked well, as Erik is an offensive player, and Methot is more of a stay at home D-man.
Sucks because I thought they should have let Cody Ceci go, yes he’s younger, but he really struggled in the playoffs.
Hearing that VGK have selected Marc Methot in the expansion draft... whether or not he gets flipped over the next few days...— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) June 21, 2017
Well at least some fans are having fun with the rumors.
