Protected Lists Available, Kraken on Clock

Early Sunday, the Kraken brain trust received the vital lists of protected players for 30 NHL teams. GM Ron Francis and staff have 72 hours to decide and submit one pick per team

by Bob Condor / @SeattleKraken / nhl.com/kraken

When the protected-players lists for 30 NHL teams were sent to the Kraken front office at 7 a.m. Sunday, there were plenty of names to review. Some were expected, others surprising. Fans can see for themselves by checking out each team's "Protected List" below (in alphabetical order).

You can also check out which teams decided on protecting 11 total players (seven forwards, three defensemen, one goalie) or nine total (eight skaters, one goalie). The latter choice is aimed at retaining four or more defensemen, an option leveraged by two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay.

Seattle GM Ron Francis and staff have 72 hours to submit the names of 30 players, one from each NHL team (Vegas excluded), by 7 a.m. Wednesday.

What's not on the protected lists is which forwards, defensemen and goaltenders are available for selection by the Kraken. Part of identifying those players is listing eligible players who are signed to contracts with their clubs that go through at least the 2021-22 season.

The work is done for you below in the "Available" section for each NHL franchise, listing the most likely players to catch the attention of the Kraken's hockey operations staff.

One note: Players with two or fewer years of professional hockey experience are exempt from being exposed during the Expansion Draft.

Importantly, the Kraken can select from the pool of any restricted and unrestricted free agents not protected by teams. Seattle has an exclusive "interview" period to engage with free agents that started at 7 a.m. Sunday.

If the Kraken comes to a contract agreement with a free agent, that player will count as the Seattle's pick from that particular NHL franchise. 

The exclusive window requires any signed contracts to be submitted to NHL offices Wednesday by 7 a.m., the same time the Kraken 30 picks (one from each team; Vegas is exempt) are due.

Ten hours later, the Kraken picks will be revealed during a live 90-minute broadcast from Gas Works Park (ESPN2, 5 p.m.). We're on the clock, Kraken fans!

Check back here for more coverage of the protected list as we break down who's available, the stats, the biggest surprises and more.
