Bratt, Mangiapane, Puljujarvi among 24 players to file for arbitration
Sunday was the deadline for eligible restricted free agents to file for salary arbitration and 24 players took advantage of that.
The Calgary Flames had three players file -- Andrew Mangiapane, Oliver Kylington, and Matthew Phillips -- while the New Jersey Devils had two players -- forward Jesper Bratt and new goalie Vitek Vanecek.
Edmonton’s Jesse Puljujarvi, Pittsburgh’s Kasperi Kapanen, and Boston’s Pavel Zacha are among the other notable players to file on Sunday.
Arbitration hearings, which have not been scheduled yet, will be held from July 27 to August 11.
Teams and players can agree to a new contract at any time before their arbitration hearings, which is how most of these situations end up getting resolved as nobody -- team or player -- particularly enjoys the arbitration hearing process.
