For the Chicago Blackhawks, the following is the list of protected players. No surprise really of any of them.
Of the unprotected/available players for the expansion draft:
Key players of interest are Marcus Kruger and Trevor van Riemsdyk, who have both been of the chatter of this upcoming expansion draft. There have been rumors of supposed deals where both players would go to Vegas dependent upon Vegas selecting one of the players and then trading for the other.
We shall see what develops as we get closer to that day.
