Each team taking part in the Seattle Kraken’s expansion draft released its list of protected players yesterday. Here’s what the Montreal Canadiens’ list looks like:

Josh Anderson
Joel Armia
Jake Evans
Brendan Gallagher
Jesperi Kotkaniemi
Artturi Lehkonen
Tyler Toffoli

Ben Chiarot
Joel Edmundson
Jeff Petry

Jake Allen

A few weeks ago, we might have been expecting something completely different, like having Phillip Danault, Jonathan Drouin, Shea Weber, and Carey Price protected from the draft.
