Ottawa Senators general manager Pierre Dorion was willing to reveal only one decision he has made for the upcoming Vegas expansion draft on Monday.

Dorion said the Senators would protect 36-year-old goaltender Craig Anderson as their goaltender for the draft next month.

Protecting Anderson means the Senators will expose Andrew Hammond and Mike Condon to the Golden Knights.

Bobby Ryan and Dion Phaneuf both own no-move clauses and therefore are automatically protected, unless they decide to waive their clauses. Dorion said forward Clarke MacArthur has a neck issue and cannot be exposed to Vegas, meaning Ottawa does not have to use a spot on him.

Dorion said that "without a doubt" the team's playoff run changed his thoughts on who to protect. He also said he's reached to Golden Knights general manager George McPhee to discuss potential trades.

"We're gonna lose a player," Dorion said. "That's part of the deal. We've got enough depth that I don't see any radical changes to this team."

Viktor Stalberg, Chris Neil, Chris Kelly, Tommy Wingels, Tom Pyatt and Condon are all set to hit unrestricted free agency for the Senators on July 1.

Dorion said talks to re-sign Condon "haven't been very good."
