The NHLPA released a list of 20 players filing for salary arbitration this summer, with Montreal Canadiens star defenseman P.K. Subban being the biggest name:

Arizona Coyotes

Brandon McMillan

Boston Bruins

Matt Bartkowski

Calgary Flames

Joe Colborne

Dallas Stars

Cameron Gaunce

Antoine Roussel

Florida Panthers

Jimmy Hayes

Los Angeles Kings

Dwight King

Minnesota Wild

Justin Fontaine

Montreal Canadiens

Lars Eller

P.K. Subban

Nashville Predators

Mattias Ekholm

New York Islanders

Kevin Poulin

New York Rangers

Derick Brassard

Chris Kreider

Mats Zuccarello

Ottawa Senators

Derek Grant

Pittsburgh Penguins

Nick Spaling

San Jose Sharks

Jason Demers

Toronto Maple Leafs

Cody Franson

James Reimer

Some pertinent bits of information: NHL teams face a July 6 (5 p.m. ET) deadline for club-elected arbitration.

Arbitration hearings are scheduled in Toronto between the dates of July 20 to August 4.

It’s worth noting that players don’t have to go through the process. In fact, it’s highly common for teams and free agents to make deals very close to the hearings and it’s become increasingly rare for the rather awkward sessions to even take place any longer. Then again, with a case like Subban and the Habs, it’s not out of the question for such a thing to take place, either.

Expect more on this process, particularly when it pertains to the biggest names on that list.

    Afternoon James.

    Can you do something about the formatting? It’s a touch tough to see when the list goes from a team to a player to a team.

      Sure thing, I’ll fix it up to make it easier on the eyes.

        Thanks James, it’s much better.

        Why are some players names in bold and some not?

    What about Ryan Johansen of the CBJs? He was the first one next to Ryan O’Rielly and neither are on this list.

      O’Reilly didn’t file, the Avs did.

      • pj608 - Jul 6, 2014 at 2:04 AM

        Oh ok… was just his name was the first that I saw during free agency didn’t understand why it wasn’t on this list

    • rmccleary97 - Jul 5, 2014 at 8:47 PM

      Johansen isn’t eligible to file for arbitration this year. O’Reilly was taken to arbitration by the team, so he wouldn’t be in the “players who filed for arbitration” list.

        I know Johansen was offered some amount of money by Columbus and said it was insulting…. What are the chances of him signing with a different team? Anyone have news on that?
