Mock Montreal Expansion Draft: the protected lists

We played General Managers in a completely fictional, for fun expansion draft!

Michelle Jay

Obviously, we are a ways away from an expansion draft being possible in women’s hockey. But it’s fun to pretend and the offseason can be a bit of drag, so we decided to hold our own expansion draft for Montréal joining the PHF.

A different writer acted as the general manger for the existing teams. Using last season’s rosters, they were able to protect two defenders, four forwards, and one goaltender. From there, everyone was allowed to be Montréal and pick six forwards, four defenders, and two goaltenders to start their team. The two caviets were they must pick at least one player from each existing team, and they cannot pick more than three players from a single team either.

Here we’ve listed each team’s protected lists and who remains on the board for each team as well. Stay tuned for our draft results, and let us know your mock Montréal team in the comments!
