NHL free agency tracker 2020: Full list of signings, best available players

Sporting News

When the NHL's free agency period will open is anyone's guess, but contracts are definitely going to expire and new ones will need to be signed.

Whether it's unrestricted or restricted free agents, there are some big fish to reel in for teams across the league. Where they'll land is a big unknown, but the salary cap is expected to, for now, rise to between $84 million and $88.2 million. This will impact who can reel in a big fish and who will net a group of minnows. There's also the fun game of roulette that teams sometimes play when they risk their next four first-round draft picks for one of the surefire restricted free-agent stars.
