NHL Expansion Draft 2021: Full list of players protected by all 30 teams

It’s almost time for Christmas in July for Seattle Kraken GM Ron Francis. He got the list of protected players on Sunday morning — and, as a result, the guys he can take —so, it’s like the day the toy catalog comes out and he gets to circle all the presents he wants on the big day.

Thirty of the 31 teams in the NHL had to submit lists by Saturday’s deadline of 5 p.m. ET. (Vegas is exempt from participating). Rumors began to swirl as early as Thursday regarding who would be left exposed and now we know. 

EXPANSION DRAFT: Date, time, rules & more for Seattle Kraken team selection

There are a few big surprises, like seeing Carey Price, Vladimir Tarasenko, Gabriel Landeskog and Jonathan Quick ripe for the taking and seeing guys like T.J. Oshie not. Alex Ovechkin was also left unprotected, but the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent is sure to re-sign with the Capitals and picking him would not make sense for the Kraken.

Here’s a list of all the players that will still be suiting up for your favorite team even after the expansion draft goes down on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
