Gagner is a pending unrestricted free agent, thus exposing him to the Vegas expansion draft, theScore reports.

Gagner forced his way back into relevancy in his first season in Columbus with a whopping career-high 50 points after toiling in Arizona and Philadelphia for a couple years. He only signed a one-year deal with the Jackets, however, and since he doesn't yet have a new deal done with the team, he's officially been exposed to the Golden Knights' draft. If they wish to select the 27-year-old, they'll get three days of exclusive negotiating rights before his rights transfer back to Columbus until the start of free agency July 1.
