Here is the list of players who will be going to arbitration to negotiate their next contract

The NHL Players' Association has just released the list of players who will be going to arbitration in the coming weeks, and that means a total of 17 players who will be going through this process to negotiate their next contract.

Restricted free agents from around the league had until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday to fill out the necessary paperwork to begin this process.

We can find the name of the goaltender of the Canadiens Michael McNiven in this list. The 24-year-old goaltender has spent the last four seasons between the Laval Rocket and the ECHL, and he should logically get a two-way contract at the end of these negotiations.

The Nashville Predators are one of three teams that will have to deal with more than one player, as Finnish goaltender Juuse Saros and young defenseman Dante Fabbro will both require to go through arbitration. On the Jets side we will find defenseman Neal Pionk and forward Andrew Copp, while forwards Jakub Vrana and Adam Erne have done the same with the Detroit Red Wings.

Defensemen Vince Dunn (Seattle Kraken) and Nikita Zadorov (Calgary Flames), forward Jason Dickinson (Vancouver Canucks), and goaltender Adin Hill (San Jose Sharks) were unable to reach an agreement with their new team, as was former Habs defenseman Victor Mete, now with the Ottawa Senators.

Zach Aston-Reese (Penguins), Ross Colton (Lightning), Zach Sanford (Blues), Adam Pelech (Islanders) and Dennis Gilbert (Avalanche) are completing the list.

It should be noted that the dates have not yet been announced, and that nothing prevents the players and their teams from reaching an agreement before then.
