Methot was not protected by the Senators and will be exposed to the upcoming expansion draft, theScore reports.

Although the veteran failed to score a goal last season, this comes as a bit of a surprise based on his status as one of the better defensive blueliners in the game. That said, it's likely that the team would prefer to protect Methot but simply isn't able to since fellow defenseman Dion Phaneuf didn't agree to waive his no-movement clause. Regardless of where Methot plays this fall, it isn't likely to cause much of a stir from a fantasy standpoint, but Senators fans will likely be keeping their fingers crossed that he remains in Ottawa.
