The Minnesota Wild have exposed defensemen Matt Dumba and Marco Scandella and forwards Erik Haula and Eric Staal for the NHL expansion draft. The league announced Sunday protected players from the 30 existing teams for the Vegas Golden Knights, who join the NHL this season. The expansion draft takes place Wednesday.


The NHL salary cap has been set at $75 million for this season in a slight increase over last year.

The league and NHL Players' Association announced the cap and the salary floor of $55.4 million in a joint statement Sunday. The figures are set by the league's hockey-related revenue.

It's an increase of $2 million from the $73 million cap last season, as players elected to use their escalator clause to raise it.
