Perron among unprotected Blues for National Hockey League expansion draft

20 June 2017, 01:43 | Marlene Fleming

And that was before McPhee learned of the high-profile group of players he'll have to choose from - limited to one from each of the 30 teams - in stocking the Golden Knights roster before submitting his list on Wednesday. McPhee answered questions about his hockey team and the NHL's expansion draft.

The NHL announced the available and protected lists for the 30 teams that will provide players to the Golden Knights in the draft, which will be announced on Wednesday night.

The Sharks released their protection list for Wednesday's NHL Expansion Draft Sunday morning, exposing forwards Mikkel Boedker and Joel Ward, defensemen Paul Martin, David Schlemko, Brenden Dillon and Dylan DeMelo, along with goalie Aaron Dell.

A Blues player who today has golf shirts hanging in his closet and plans to report to training camp in St. Louis in September will find out this week that wardrobes and life will change.

Goalie James Reimer was also protected.

The last expansion draft was in 2000, when the Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild entered the league.

The Coyotes retained 25 per cent of Smith's salary in the deal, and they now have about $30 million in cap space for next season - in addition to newly acquired prospects and assets from these most recent trades.

“The most fun Ive ever had in hockey, ” McPhee said in a video posted of him driving to the teams headquarters on Sunday. He would likely receive a trove of draft picks, which would set up the Knights for this year and beyond.

Richmond said he saw Griner and Bailey nearly weekly when they fly home to Louisiana with Scalise. Griner and Special Agent David Bailey engaged the gunman and shot him dead.

"We think we can accomplish two things", McPhee said, according to NHL.com.

Sunday's violence came about a week after the U.S. State Department warned of possible attacks on Western diplomatic missions and other locations in Bamako that Westerners frequent. There are also a handful of teams looking for backup help, which suggests McPhee could leverage players like Domingue, Malcom Subban, who was left unprotected by Boston, Linus Ullmark exposed by Buffalo or Antti Raanta, who was a terrific backup to Henrik Lundqvist in NY, into other assets moving forward.

"We can put a competitive team on the ice and accumulate draft picks", McPhee said, via the Knights Twitter account.

The Winnipeg Jets solved an expansion issue even as they didn't make a trade as Toby Enstrom agreed to waive his no-movement clause before the deadline Friday, allowing them to protect their other three top defensemen: Dustin Byfuglien, Jacob Trouba and Tyler Myers.

$4.5 million. McPhee traded for Brouwer in Washington and knows what type of leader the rugged 31-year-old winger is.

Antti Raanta (New York Rangers) spent two seasons as a backup to Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks - with whom he won a Stanley Cup in 2015 - and two more playing behind Henrik Lundqvist in New York. He's a right-handed shot and played some with Victor Hedman last season.

The Montreal Canadiens recouped a third-round pick from the Buffalo Sabres for 24-year-old defenseman Nathan Beaulieu, who has a connection to Vegas coach Gerard Gallant and would've been left exposed in the expansion draft. Winnipeg is another as the Jets need a starter to be a playoff threat. If Wilson can get the remaining $12 million of his contract off the books, it would give him more cap flexibility when free agency kicks off on July 1.
