Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Protected by Flyers

Simmonds was protected by Philadelphia and will not be available to Vegas in the expansion draft, NHL.com reports.

Simmonds turned in another rock-solid fantasy season with excellent cross-category coverage. He topped the 30-goal mark for the second straight year and supported his 32 tallies with 54 points, 224 shots, 122 PIM and 162 hits. His 25 power-play points were also a career-best mark. Unfortunately, Simmonds' minus-18 rating was a statistical drain, but there is potential for him to rebound next year in that column.
