NHL: Archibald left unprotected by Penguins

Brainerd High School graduate Josh Archibald is one of 26 players left unprotected by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The NHL announced Sunday the available and protected lists for the 30 teams who will provide players to the Vegas Golden Knights in this week's expansion draft.

Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup champion, was among the high-profile players left unprotected and available for the Golden Knights to select.

The Golden Knights' selection of 30 players—one from each NHL club—will be revealed at the 2017 NHL awards and expansion draft Wednesday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Eric Staal of the Minnesota Wild, Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings and Tomas Plekanec of the Montreal Canadiens were among players unprotected.
