The Nashville Predators are widely expected to choose to protect eight skaters in the expansion draft over seven forwards and three defence in order to keep P.K. Subban, Roman Josi, Mattias Ekholm and Ryan Ellis all protected.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reported Tuesday that with the Predators left with only four forward slots, winger James Neal could be exposed.

Neal, 29, scored 23 goals and added 18 assists in 70 games during the regular season this year and added six goals and nine points in the team's playoff run, which ended Sunday.

Neal was traded to the Predators from the Pittsburgh Penguins ahead of the 2014 season, in a trade which saw Patric Hornqvist, among others, sent to Pittsburgh.
