Fleury among players exposed for Vegas NHL expansion draft

Top Secret

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.

The Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins avoided making a potentially harmful trade several months ago when they asked veteran goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury if he'd waive his no-movement clause so they could protect 23-year-old goalie of the future and present Matt Murray.

This advantage doesn't suggest the Knights to sign every proven goal scorer and dynamic defenseman available because they must draft 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders as the framework of a 30-man roster.

Among those left unprotected are David Perron, Dmitrij Jaskin, Kyle Brodziak, Magnus Paajarvi, Jori Lehtera, defenseman Carl Gunnarsson, and goaltender Carter Hutton.

Shupe made history past year when he became the first person in the U.S.to win the right to legally identify as non-binary. She said the move is a step towards "a society that upholds the rights, liberties and dignity of each of its people".

Vatanen, a fifth-year player, won't be ready for the start of next season after having surgery to fix a shoulder injury. As for defensemen, Buffalo's Zach Bogosian and Dallas' Dan Hamhuis are available. Aside from Fleury, other goalies available are Florida's Roberto Luongo, Detroit's Petr Mrazek and Philadelphia's Michal Neuvirth. The Golden Knights could swipe Rangers forward Michael Grabner, who scored 27 goals this past season. Players with no more than two years of experience, most notably Robby Fabbri and Colton Parayko for St. Louis, are exempt from being selected in the expansion draft. There was the hiring of general manger George McPhee and coach Gerard Gallant, the building of a new arena on the Las Vegas Strip, the announcement of an AHL affiliate, and of course, the reveal of the team name: Vegas Golden Knights. In other words, McPhee is happy to accept a collection of draft picks, prospects and other assets in exchange for not selecting certain players.

The Wild have an atypical run-up to the Entry Draft as they don't have picks in the first or second round. They already own the sixth overall pick, but TSN's Pierre LeBrun spoke to an National Hockey League general manager, who believes there's a chance the Golden Knights have already made side deals to acquire more draft picks. Under contract for another four years at $7.25 million per season, the Bruins will instead focus on trying to find another capable wing to skate with Krejci, particularly on his left side.

Zdeno Chara: The lone B's defenseman with a no-movement clause, the Bruins are not letting their captain walk for nothing.

"I don't think this process is any different than, say, a free agency process or a trade deadline process where there's a lot of talk leading up to the anointed hour and then activity happens". The selections will be announced Wednesday during the annual NHL Awards Show - in Las Vegas, no less.

Oil prices fall on OPEC output increase, rising US crude stocks
And at a meeting at the end of May, both OPEC and non-OPEC countries chose to roll over the output cuts for a further nine months. A rapid rise in USA shale oil output will contribute to the increase in non-OPEC supply next year, the IEA said.

Stu's take: The biggest question mark is Alexander Radulov, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Brodziak and Jaskin are players the Blues would certainly love to retain, but could be nice pieces for the Golden Knights to snag to fill immediate roles on the inaugural team.

Such is the case with the Anaheim Ducks, who left defensemen Josh Manson and Sami Vatanen exposed because Kevin Bieksa's contract forces them to protect him.

Chayka was exaggerating, but only slightly.

There is a trade freeze from noon Saturday though 5 a.m. on Thursday, June 22.
