Protected lists from teams are due Saturday. The league is expected to release them at some point this weekend.
Any player with a no-movement clause must be protected in the expansion draft unless he waives it. Buffalo’s Jeff Skinner is among the players who have agreed to waive that clause and be exposed to Seattle, while Minnesota bought out Ryan Suter and Zach Parise and Florida bought out Keith Yandle — all players with no-movement protection in their contracts.
Bishop, 34, missed last season recovering from right knee surgery. He is signed for two more seasons at a salary cap hit of $4.9 million.
