Flames' Brian Elliott: Left unprotected for expansion draft

Elliott was left unprotected by the Flames for Wednesday's expansion draft, TSN reports.

Elliott had a rough end to the 2016-17 season, as his final moment was being pulled in the first period of the Flames' Game 4 loss to the Ducks in the first round of the playoffs. In the game before that, Elliott ended up giving up five goals in an overtime loss. Elliott's postseason struggles -- on top of the fact that Calgary has brought in Mike Smith via a trade with the Coyotes to serve as their No. 1 goalie -- has led to his availability.
