Source: Vegas Selecting Flyers' Pierre-Edouard Bellemare in Expansion Draft

The Frenchman has left the building.
Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, the first player from the city of Paris to ever play for the Flyers, has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the NHL expansion draft, according to league source.
The Golden Knights' official list won't be made public until about 8 p.m. during the NHL Awards gala in Las Vegas.
The 32-year-old centerman was left unprotected by the Flyers last weekend.
Flyers general manager Ron Hextall can still to orchestrate a deal with Vegas to get Bellemare back if he so chooses.
Among the potential candidates on the Flyers unprotected list, Bellemare and Michael Raffl were the most attractive forwards left exposed (see story).
He got a new two-year contract last March and was named an alternate captain after Mark Streit was traded to Tampa and then flipped to Pittsburgh at the deadline.
What makes Bellemare attractive to Vegas is his ability to play up and down the lineup, his solid work as a penalty killer and, especially, his $1.45 million cap hit for this season and 2018-19.
Craig Custance of TheAthleticDET tweeted Bellemare's name first on Wednesday afternoon.
