MARC-ANDRÉ FLEURY: Expansion pick from the Penguins, who were only allowed to protect one goalie and opted for the younger and cheaper Matt Murray, who had taken the No. 1 job. Fleury waived his no-movement clause. The Pens threw in a second-round pick.
SHEA THEODORE: Vegas agreed to take defenceman Clayton Stoner in the draft (with a $3.25-million cap hit) if Anaheim sent them Theodore. The Ducks were at risk of losing Sami Vatanen or Josh Manson.
JAMES NEAL: Claimed from Nashville. The Preds attempted to work a deal to keep the shooter, but price was too high.
RYAN REAVES: Acquired from Pittsburgh in a February three-team trade that saw Tobias Lindberg end up in Pittsburgh and Derick Brassard land in Ottawa, with Vegas retaining some of Brassard’s salary.
REILLY SMITH/JONATHAN MARCHESSAULT: Vegas was allowed to draft Marchessault as incentive for taking Smith in a trade. Cost-cutting Florida wanted to dump his five-year, $25-million contract.
TOMAS TATAR: Acquired Feb. 25 from Detroit for a 2018 first-round pick, 2019 second-rounder and 2021 third-rounder.
ERIK HAULA/ALEX TUCH: Vegas claimed Haula, and was given Tuch by the Wild as incentive to stay away from defencemen Marco Scandella and Mathew Dumba.
WILLIAM KARLSSON: The Blue Jackets traded him to Vegas, along with a 2017 first-round pick and 2019 second-rounder in exchange for Vegas taking injured David Clarkson (with three years and a $5.275-million cap hit remaining) off their hands.
WILLIAM CARRIER: The Sabres gave Vegas a sixth-round pick to take Carrier.
