NHL Expansion Draft 2017 Protection List Made Public

Calgary Alberta CAN Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc Andre Fleury makes a save against the Calgary Flames

Here are the previews for the Atlantic, Metropolitan and Central Divisions. He'll also want to see what other options might be out there on June 25, so signing with the Golden Knights wouldn't make much sense - at least not yet. Saturday, June 17: All teams simultaneously submit Expansion Draft protection lists to the NHL's Central Registry.

The Golden Knights said Saturday night they were very pleased with the expansion draft process so far and have "indicated that they will give all 30 clubs every opportunity to keep their rosters intact if they'd like". If a veteran catches McPhee's eyes that's okay, but he must be able to contribute on the ice and help create a winning environment inside the locker room.

Additionally, players that have been under professional contract for the past three years are also eligible to be picked by the Golden Knights.

At the same time, Las Vegas must submit contracts for any free agent they've signed during their special signing window. The team will unveil its initial roster with expansion draft picks during Wednesday's NHL Awards Show from Vegas (8 p.m., NBCSN). Carolina has about $24 million of cap space to play with and will have to add at least $6 million to get to the salary floor.

There's also nothing barring Vegas from making deals to select a player and trade him to another team.

It's believed ANA has a pre-arranged deal in place with VGK so it isn't necessary to ask Kevin Bieksa to waive his NMC. Only seven forwards, three defenseman and a goaltender (or eight skaters of any position and a goaltender) can be protected. Either way, they're guarantee to welcome a quality player to the desert.

Even though the protection lists are public, the process isn't as straightforward as Vegas taking the best asset available from each team.

"The most fun I've ever had in hockey", McPhee said in a video posted of him driving to the team's headquarters on Sunday.

Why he will go to Vegas: Ward previously played under Vegas GM George McPhee in Washington, so McPhee is surely aware of how respected Ward is around the league. Marchessault is a free agent after this coming season. (Thornton and Marleau) have choices.

Nick Shore, center: Possible trade bait in the days leading up to the expansion draft? The Islanders were the only team to protect five defensemen, and they might still lose blue-liner Calvin de Haan.

The league wasnt looking to increase last seasons $73 million U.S. cap, however, the players were said to be close to backing at least a 2.5% escalator and bring the cap to $75 million. But, it's just as likely that Carolina uses Fleury or fellow D-man Jake Bean, last year's first rounder, in a trade than we see them in a Canes sweater.

Doug Armstrong and company protected forwards Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen, Paul Stastny, Vladimir Sobotka, Patrik Berglund, and Ryan Reaves, defensemen Alex Pietrangelo, Joel Edmundson, and Jay Bouwmeester, and goaltender Jake Allen.
