Sharp (hip) was not included on the Stars' protected players list for the expansion draft.

Sharp played in just 48 games this year after suffering a pair of concussions and then undergoing season-ending hip surgery in March. While the winger did manage eight goals and 10 helpers, he also registered a minus-22 rating and saw the lowest average ice time of his career (15:57). The Golden Knights might not be the only club concerned about the veteran's injury history as he appears set to hit free agency on July 1.
