Vanecek (lower body) was the choice of Seattle from Washington in Wednesday's Expansion Draft.

Vanecek will get the opportunity to compete with Chris Driedger for the starting job but will likely enter training camp as the presumptive No. 2. Of course, coach Dave Hakstol could opt for more of an even goalie split between his two netminders, which could still result in Vanecek playing in less than the 37 games he did this past season. In those outings, the 24-year-old Czech went 21-10-4 with two shutouts and a .908 save percentage.
