LAS VEGAS, N.V. (WIVB) – In Wednesday night’s expansion draft, the Sabres gave up William Carrier to the Vegas Golden Knights in addition to a 6th round pick in this year’s entry draft.

Carrier, a 22 year-old left winger, was acquired by the Sabres from St. Louis in the Ryan Miller trade in 2014.

The forward just wrapped up his first NHL season, scoring 5 goals and amassing 8 points in 41 games for the blue and gold.
