The NHLPA announced that 30 players will file for salary arbitration.

For a refresher, salary arbitration is where a contract dispute is settled through the player and team each proposing a salary for the upcoming season at a hearing. The neutral third party (arbitrator) sets the player’s salary for the season after the process. If one signs an NHL contract before the age of 20, they must have four seasons of NHL experience to be eligible. If over 20, the term is decreased. The player can never receive less than 85% of his previous year’s salary and the team must make a decision to honor or decline the player’s awarded salary by the arbitrator in the next 48 hours after the hearing. If the team declines, the player can become an unrestricted free agent.

New York Rangers forward Jesper Fast and Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk have already settled by signing new contracts with their teams.
