The Wild announces which players will be exposed in the Expansion Draft

Las Vegas will announce their selections on Wednesday, June 21.

The Wild (as well as the rest of the league) submitted its list of protected and exposed players for the upcoming Expansion Draft for the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

The following players will be exposed:

  • Matt Dumba
  • Marco Scandella
  • Eric Staal
  • Erik Haula

Remember, Las Vegas can only select one player – but there's still a chance Minnesota and Las Vegas can work out a trade over the next three days, instead of losing a player for absolutely nothing.

Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said last week he's had conversations with Golden Knights GM George McPhee, but nothing has been agreed upon.

Teams are required to protect players with no-movement clauses, and the Wild have four players with said clauses in their contracts. Minnesota used a 7-3-1 format for protected players.

Here's who they chose to protect:

  • Mikko Koivu (NMC)
  • Zach Parise (NMC
  • Jason Pominville (NMC)
  • Mikael Granlund
  • Nino Niederreiter
  • Charlie Coyle
  • Jason Zucker
  • Ryan Suter (NMC)
  • Jared Spurgeon
  • Jonas Brodin
  • Devan Dubnyk

Las Vegas will announce their selections on Wednesday, June 21 at 7 p.m. at the NHL Awards show.
