Marc-Andre Fleury of Pittsburgh Penguins, James Neal of Nashville Predators among players left unprotected

NHL


Three-time Stanley Cup champion goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, Nashville Predators forward James Neal and Anaheim Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen are among the high-profile players available for the Vegas Golden Knights to select in the NHL expansion draft.

Now it’s on Golden Knights general manager George McPhee to spend the next three days poring over the list of available players as the team selects one from each of the NHL’s 30 teams.

McPhee told reporters Sunday that “there were no surprises” when the Golden Knights received the lists and that he was “really pleased with what’s available.”

“We are now going through the process of trying to put the team together, we are still talking to clubs and we are hoping to do deals with clubs if they want to protect their rosters,” he told reporters, according to SportsNet.

McPhee’s message to teams Sunday was: “You can negotiate your way out of this if you wish. Every team in this league has a chance to protect their roster.”
