Teams will submit a list of 11 players they wish to protect ahead of the Expansion Draft.

Per the CBA, a maximum of five forwards and one goaltender can be put on a team’s protected player list.

Well the league has published the protected players lists. Some interesting names available to Rochester and New York.

Curious move by Philadelphia not protecting a goaltender.  Let the bitching by Philly faithful begin.

Anyway let the backroom deals begin in earnest. Check out the lists below.

Press Release

So nice of the league to finally find time to publish this information. Nevermind that the Swarm let the cat out of the bag on May 29.

For anyone not paying attention or needs a reminder. Since the article disappeared from the Swarm site. ( Guessing they got a tap on the shoulder, and the intern got fired.)

The New York Riptide have won the coin toss and will select first in the NLL entry draft. The Rochester Knighthawks 2.0 will have the first pick in the expansion draft.

The NLL will hold a coin toss between the New York Riptide and the Rochester Knighthawks. The winner of the coin toss will get to choose whether to pick first in the expansion draft or pick first in the entry draft.

Wednesday May 29 5:00 PM ET at the Blue Cross Arena. ( Wouldn’t it just be easier to hold it at the local brewery? Since only the die-hard fans will care.) Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz will be in attendance to help launch Knighthawks 2.0.

Scroll down a few posts and you can see the re-vamped logo which leaves a lot to be desired and no we have not located the color scheme yet.
