DEFENSEMEN (8): Jonathan Narbonne, Barrett Kaib, Brett Kostolansky, Brian O’Rourke, Anthony Mastrodicasa, Sean Erickson, Michael Young, Max Nicastro

Teams are allowed to protect as many players as they wish provided the players protected meet the guidelines as defined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the ECHL and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association which state that teams shall retain the rights to each player that:
