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.

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).
