Penguins' Mark Streit: Exposed for expansion draft

Streit was not among the Penguins' protected players for the Vegas expansion draft.

Considering Streit logged just 19 regular-season and three playoff games for the Pens this year, it shouldn't come as a surprise they chose not to protect him from being selected by the Golden Knights. The 39-year-old was an emergency pickup in order to provide coverage for a banged-up blue line. General manager Jim Rutherford could decide to re-sign the defenseman, but that determination likely won't come until after July 1 when free agency begins.
