The Winnipeg Jets solved an expansion issue even as they didn't make a trade as Toby Enstrom agreed to waive his no-movement clause before the deadline Friday, allowing them to protect their other three top defensemen: Dustin Byfuglien, Jacob Trouba and Tyler Myers.

There's also nothing barring Vegas from having a deal in place to select a player in order to trade him to another team.

Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reported the Columbus Blue Jackets are set to give the Golden Knights the No. 24 overall pick in the 2017 National Hockey League draft and a prospect in exchange for the expansion team only taking Matt Calvert, William Karlsson or Ryan Murray.

Pollsters projected Republic on the Move! and its allies could take up to about 360 of the lower chamber's 577 seats. As ballots were still being counted, Macron's party held around 42% of the vote followed by the Republicans on 22%.

The NHL is now under a trade freeze that lasts until Thursday at 8 a.m., with teams only allowed to make trades with the Golden Knights. As for defensemen, Minnesota exposed both Matt Dumba and Marco Scandella, while Buffalo's Zach Bogosian and Dallas' Dan Hamhuis are also available.

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is one marquee player's who's not expected to receive any added protection from his team.

While some fans were hoping the team would expose defenseman Mike Green to potentially shed his $6 million cap hit, Green is the one offensive presence on the Wings' blue line. Ward lived up to the expectations of the three-year, $9.75 million contract he signed with the Sharks in July 2015 when he collected seven goals and 13 points during the team's run to the Stanley Cup Final last spring.

Those lists, which will be released to the public at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning, will feature some of the biggest names in the sport, but in the case of the Chicago Blackhawks, it will also provide a window into their thought process as they reshape their roster. Every team will lose one player in the draft and there could be a noticeable change in Florida. Their picks must be submitted by Wednesday at 10 a.m. and will be revealed during the NHL Awards Show on Wednesday night.

The unprotected list includes players eligible to become restricted or unrestricted free agents.

Francis didn't say what his plans might be, saying, "We'll just see where we are and what happens" in the expansion draft.
