Ducks' Sami Vatanen: Exposed to expansion draft

Vatanen (shoulder) was left unprotected ahead of the upcoming expansion draft, TSN reports.

Vatanen was one of a few Ducks players left exposed that could warrant selection. He was rumored to have been on the trading block prior to the roster freeze Saturday, but ultimately wasn't dealt before the deadline. However, the team is rumored to have a deal already in place to send other pieces to Vegas instead, so it's possible the 25-year-old and his offensive abilities will remain in Anaheim for the foreseeable future.
