Projected protection list

Seven forwards: Joel Eriksson Ek, Kevin Fiala, Marcus Foligno, Jordan Greenway, Ryan Hartman, Nico Sturm and Mats Zuccarello.

Three defensemen: Jonas Brodin, Matt Dumba and Jared Spurgeon.

One goalie: Cam Talbot.

Possible Seattle targets

Carson Soucy, defense

Losing Soucy would create another hole on a Wild blue line already in need of attention.

Kaapo Kahkonen, goaltender

The Wild could use free agency to bring in a new backup if Kahkonen leaves.
