What We’re Hearing About Sharks’ Protected List

Who’s on the San Jose Sharks’ protected list?

NHL teams had until 2 PM PT today to turn in their lists to the league.

San Jose Hockey Now is hearing that there won’t be any surprises to the Sharks’ protected list.

That means a 7 forwards-3 defensemen-1 goalie configuration.

The San Jose Sharks should protect Logan Couture, Evander Kane, Tomas Hertl, Kevin Labanc, Timo Meier, Rudolfs Balcers, and Jonathan Dahlen up front.

On the back-end, they should protect Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Newly-acquired Adin Hill will also be protected.

Save for Hill, who was acquired this morning, this has been SJHN’s projection for the last month.

That means the Seattle Kraken can choose from forwards Dylan Gambrell, Matt Nieto, Jayden Halbgewachs, Ryan Donato, Alex True, Marcus Sorensen, Maxim Letunov, Patrick Marleau, and Kurtis Gabriel. Or they can select defensemen Radim Simek, Christian Jaros, Jake Middleton, Nicholas Meloche, and Greg Pateryn, or goalie Martin Jones.

The San Jose Sharks will lose one of these players to the Kraken. Who will it be? We’ll find out at Wednesday’s expansion draft.

The NHL will release official protected lists for every team, except for the Vegas Golden Knights, tomorrow morning.
