Here’s who the Red Wings are protecting, not protecting in NHL…


DETROIT – The NHL has released every team’s list of protected and unprotected players for this Wednesday’s Expansion Draft. 

Each team had the option to protect seven forwards, three defensemen and one goalie, or eight skaters and one goalie. All players with continuing and effective no-movement clauses had to be protected. All first- and second-year professionals are exempt from selection, as are unsigned draft choices.

Vegas has until 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday to submit its expansion draft selections. The Golden Knights must choose 30 players, one from each team and must take a minimum of 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalies from the lists of unprotected players.

Justin Abdelkader (F) • Andreas Athanasiou (F) Anthony Mantha (F) Frans Nielsen (F) Gustav Nyquist (F) Tomas Tatar (F) Henrik Zetterberg (F) Danny DeKeyser (D) Mike Green (D) Nick Jensen (D) Jimmy Howard (G)
