Canadiens’ Price Left Unprotected for Kraken Expansion Draft
Goaltender Carey Price has been exposed to the Seattle Kraken in the expansion draft after backstopping the Montreal Canadiens to the Stanley Cup Final. Price agreed to be exposed so the Canadiens could protect cheaper backup Jake Allen. But the risk is that Seattle takes Price and his hefty contract so he can be the face of the NHL's 32nd franchise. Price is the biggest but he's not the only star left unprotected for the Kraken to select. St. Louis winger Vladimir Tarasenko is an option after asking the Blues for a trade. And Calgary exposed captain and 2019 Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Mark Giordano.
