It was announced this morning that the Las Vegas Golden Knights will select one player from each of the 30 NHL teams on Wednesday (June 21st) as part of the NHL’s annual award show. And yes, that does mean that someone from the Minnesota Wild will be leaving us. The higher ups at the Wild camp have also released today a statement of the names of players they will (and won’t) protect for the upcoming expansion draft.
