Martin's name wasn't on the list of protected players announced Sunday, TSN reports.

Martin enters 2017-18 with two years remaining on his contract, but is coming off a reasonably productive season with the Sharks in 2016-17, notching 26 points (four goals, 22 assists) over 81 games. He would come at a sizable cap hit ($4.85 million) for Vegas over the next couple of seasons, but that doesn't rule him out as a potential selection.
