If Nosek is selected by the Golden Knights, it would keep goalie Petr Mrazek with the Red Wings - at least for now, anyway.

The Vegas Golden Knights have selected Red Wings forward Tomas Nosek to join their roster in the 2017 National Hockey League expansion draft. He's entering the second year of a two-year deal, and he's set to make $650,000 this season.

Jeff Blashill was highly complimentary of Tomas Nosek during the Grand Rapids Griffins run to the Calder Cup.

He led Real Madrid to the Spanish league championship this year and to a successful defense of their Champions League title. The Portuguese player has always said he's very calm about these accusations because he has always paid his taxes in Spain .

Nosek has played in just 17 National Hockey League games, but recorded 15 goals and 41 points in his 51 regular season games with the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Red Wings assistant general manager Ryan Martin attested to Nosek's abilities last May. In Grand Rapids this season, he achieved career highs for assists (26) and points (41), before putting together a very impressive postseason, scoring 10 goals and 22 points in 19 games, as Grand Rapids won the Calder Cup.

Among the Red Wings players that they chose to expose for the expansion draft included Mrazek, Darren Helm, Riley Sheahan, Niklas Kronwall, Xavier Ouellet, and Luke Glendening.
