Salary arbitration hearings will be held from Oct. 20 through Nov. 8. A player can sign a contract with his current team any time before an arbitrator’s ruling.

Last offseason, 40 restricted free agents filed for arbitration. Six players had their salary determined by an arbitrator (Andrew Copp, Winnipeg Jets; Christian Djoos, Washington Capitals; Joel Edmundson, St. Louis Blues; Anton Forsberg, Carolina Hurricanes; Rocco Grimaldi, Nashville Predators; and Evan Rodrigues, Buffalo Sabres). The other 34 each came to an agreement before his scheduled hearing.
