The Wild may move a defenseman sooner rather than later in order to avoid losing a rearguard in the upcoming 2017-18 expansion draft.
If the proposed rules with respect to roster protection come to pass, NHL teams will only be able to protect three defensemen in advance of the expansion draft. Ryan Suter would be a given and then the team would have to choose two from Jared Spurgeon, Jonas Brodin, Marco Scandella and Matt Dumba. Instead of losing one of them for nothing, the Wild may consider moving one for a pick prior to the June entry draft next week. Stay tuned. Jun 18 - 11:16 AM
