Photo by Gerry Thomas/NHLI via Getty Images A look at who’d we consider protecting today With the NHL’s next expansion draft roughly 16 months away, teams are about to really start focusing on positioning themselves well for Seattle’s arrival. After the Flames went through the Vegas expansion painlessly (losing Deryk Engelland when he was probably going to sign there anyways), it looks like Calgary will be in a much tougher position in June 2021. With that in mind, I’m starting a series where we look at how a possible protection list would look right now, and how it may change over the next year and a h

Date: 2020-02-18

CALGARY – Andrew Mangiapane has heard all the talk the last few months about what his team’s shopping list is topped by: A top-six forward to play on the second line, preferably a righty to play on the right side. That job currently belongs to Mangiapane, who bolstered his resume considerably Monday with an all-world effort that included an assist, a drawn penalty, his first pro hat trick and recognition he may have turned much more than just the game around. Spearheading a shocking comeback that turned a 3-1, third period deficit into a 6-4 win over the Ducks, Mangiapane’s case for remaining in the top six was echoed by the legions of hats that rained down following his hatty. “That’s rumours right?” the 23-year-old said, shrugging. “We could get a right-handed guy – we don’t know.
