Manson was not protected by the Ducks ahead of Wednesday's expansion draft, TSN reports.

Manson emerged late in the season for the Ducks, supplying some spark during the team's playoff run. Supposedly, the team already has a deal in place to send other assets in order to avoid sending the blueliner to Vegas, which would be a big plus for Anaheim. The names that would be moved remain unclear, however.
