Three local NHLers made available for expansion draft

Multiple awards are set to be announced at the NHL Awards show in Las Vegas

It will last through Tuesday. And those picks will be announced during the NHL Awards show that night, starting at 8 p.m.

The release of the teams' protected lists kicks off a busy two-week stretch for the National Hockey League.

Anaheim wants to keep defensemen Sami Vatanen and Josh Manson, Columbus wants to keep goalie Joonas Korpisalo, forward Josh Anderson, and defenseman Jack Johnson, and NY wants to keep forwards Josh Bailey and Casey Cizikas.

The start of the expansion draft process means a trading freeze is in place through Thursday morning for the 30 other teams.

McPhee said Sunday. "It certainly changed today; it's a different phase". The Golden Knights could swipe Rangers forward Michael Grabner, who scored 27 goals this past season.

SURE BET: This is where elite talent already under contract is hard to find, outside of maybe Nashville's James Neal, a 10-time 20-goal scorer, and 32-year-old Minnesota center Eric Staal.

At least 20 players must be under contract for the coming season.

Vegas is holding all the cards while the rest of the National Hockey League comes to a full stop in awaiting McPhee to determine his selections over a three-day stretch during which the Golden Knights are the only team allowed to make trades and sign pending free agents.

Ronaldo far from Portugal´s only threat, warns Osorio
The team from CONCACAF had enjoyed nearly 70 percent of possession against the European champions, but hadn't threatened the goal. Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo attends a training session at the Rubin Training Ground in Kazan, Russia, on Friday, June 16, 2017.

"I'm really pleased with what's available", McPhee told reporters in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Notable goalies available to the Knights include, Philipp Grubauer of Washington, Roberto Luongo of Florida, Detroit Red Wings Petr Mrazek and Colorado's Calvin Pickard, who backstopped Canada to a silver medal last month at the World Championships. The protection lists have been submitted, and the Golden Knights are in their 72-hour window of exclusive free agent negotiation.

"We've got another office in there preparing for the Entry Draft", McPhee said We're doing most of the expansion stuff during the day and at the end of the day, when everybody's tuckered out, then we go in and deal with the amateur stuff. They must take a minimum of 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalies from the lists of unprotected players. "We are going to pick our team tomorrow".

The Devils lose one player to expansion, and here are the most likely candidates to be taken.

"It was just about him growing up and maturing", McPhee said at the scouting combine. The Golden Knights could land Methot in their expansion dr.

The Toronto Maple Leafs may be in a good position to make a deal with the Golden Knights that would be beneficial to both, as GM Lou Lamoriello could give McPhee young assets in return for an experienced defenseman that could solidify the Leafs blueline, but the question is which blueliners are legitimately up for bid and which are just their to tantalize.

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. They protected forwards Paul Stastny, Alexander Steen, Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Patrik Berglund, Vladimir Sobotka and Ryan Reaves, along with defensemen Alex Pietrangelo, Jay Bouwmeester and Joel Edmundson plus goalie Jake Allen. The Golden Knights must take players whose average annual salaries add up to at least $43.8 million, or 60 percent of the $73 million salary cap that was in place for this season.
