Ottawa Senators defenseman Dion Phaneuf is not expected to waive his no-movement clause leading up to the expansion draft, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie.

The 32-year-old was reportedly asked by the club to do so, which would expose him to the Vegas Golden Knights.

However, should Phaneuf retain his clause he'll be automatically protected. The Senators, of course, will certainly protect captain Erik Karlsson, and will likely have to choose between Marc Methot and Cody Ceci to round out their list should they choose the seven-three-one format.

Phaneuf's current contract runs through the 2020-21 season at an annual cap hit of $7 million.
