Twenty-six free agent with compensation from the National Hockey League (NHL) have officially requested arbitration for their next contract on Saturday.
Eligible Bettman Circuit athletes had until 5:00 p.m. EST to take advantage of this option. NHL clubs have until Sunday to submit names to the process.
Consultations with an arbitrator will then take place between October 20 and November 8.
Among the big names in this “vintage” are forwards Victor Olofsson and Sam Reinhart, of the Buffalo Sabers. The first was named to the All-Star Rookie Team after recording 42 points, including 20 goals, in 54 games.
Reinhart, he is the second center player of the team, behind Jack Eichel. He has amassed over 50 points in the last three seasons.
New York Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo also finds himself on the list after a surprising 53-point season in 2019-2020. Ditto for Ryan Strome, who has often been paired with Artemi Panarin.
No player from the Montreal Canadiens will go to arbitration this season.
