With the Wild not making any moves prior to the roster freeze and trade moratorium, Minnesota sent this list into Central Registry at 4 PM CT Saturday. The Wild used the 7-3-1 format which allows them to protect 7 forwards, 3 defensemen, and 1 goalie. So without further delay here is the protection list for the Minnesota Wild.


Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, Jason Pominville, Mikael Granlund, Nino Niederreiter, Charlie Coyle, Jason Zucker


Ryan Suter, Jared Spurgeon, Jonas Brodin


Devan Dubnyk
