Blues' protected list will be announced soon

Penguins' Fleury left available for Vegas expansion draft

Seventeen years have passed, and it appears general managers are still determining how to best protect their rosters, even as a key deadline for the Vegas Golden Knights draft draws near. We'll find out exactly who made side deals with Golden Knights GM George McPhee prior to next week's expansion draft.

The NHL revealed the Blues' protected list for the upcoming expansion draft, ushering in the Vegas Golden Knights.

At 5 p.m. Saturday, teams must submit their protected lists to the league - either seven forwards, three defencemen and one goalie or eight combined skaters and one goalie, which will be made public at 10 a.m. Sunday.

"It's a part of the reason we like this trade", Yzerman said of the deal, which netted Mikhail Sergachev, a high-upside defensive prospect who is exempt from exposure to Vegas.

"We looked at the lists and there were no surprises", McPhee told reporters on Sunday.

Summerhays takes advantage of Dufner collapse at Memorial
Dufner arrived in OH having missed only two cuts, but he hadn't finished any better than T-11 in an individual stroke play event. It's a 72-hole tournament, there's a lot of things that can happen out there. "He's one of the best guys I know out here".

On Sunday, the National Hockey League is set to reveal each team's protected lists for the Vegas Golden Knights' expansion draft Wednesday.

As for goalies, each team will have to expose at least one under contract for next season, or a qualified restricted free agent.

The Rangers were expected to hang onto captain Ryan McDonagh, Mika Zibanejad, Derek Stepan, Chris Kreider, Mats Zuccarello, Kevin Hayes, J.T. Miller and another defenseman, likely Nick Holden, with a year left at $1.6 million, or unrestricted free agent Brendan Smith, in order to keep his rights while trying to sign him. For what it's worth, Wild forward Jason Zucker is a Las Vegas native so the allure of drafting a hometown player may come into effect. The team will be announced Wednesday night during the NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas.

Translation: The Golden Knights are widely open for business.

Goalie James Reimer was also protected.

Two men arrested, accused of attacking Border Patrol agent
They were a little over 11 miles (17.7 kilometers) north of the global border near the small town of Arivaca. On Thursday, officers served a search warrant at the camp, which is located just 11 miles from the border.

The Montreal Canadiens recouped a third-round pick from the Buffalo Sabres for 24-year-old defenseman Nathan Beaulieu, who has a connection to Vegas coach Gerard Gallant and would've been left exposed in the expansion draft.

That's a bit further down the line and it remains to be seen how it will play out, but for expansion purposes Fleury pretty much took out all the drama or unknown, when he nearly literally "took one for the team" to open himself up for the expansion draft.

Some reports have trickled out, and there have been musings from well-connected media members that Vegas may already have as many as three first-round picks in its back pocket.

"It had all the feelings of a trade deadline, but there was conditions", Flames GM Brad Treliving said by phone.

Most of those charged in the case accepted plea deals, an option unlikely to be offered to Jeffs, said John Huber, the U.S. Jeffs however, still has eight "spiritual wives", as the sect believes polygamy brings men exaltation in heaven.

This trade affords Anaheim to keep Cam Fowler, Kevin Bieksa, Josh Manson and Hampus Lindholm as a unit, but now, the Golden Knights have an opportunity to select a top-nine forward off the Ducks roster.
