(asterisk signifies settlement)

Schwartz, who’s hit the 25-goal mark in two of his last three seasons, has never been through arbitration before but, in 2014, sat out the early part of the Blues’ training camp while hammering out a new deal.

The two sides eventually agreed to a two-year, $4.7 million extension.

Johansson went to arbitration with the Caps last season, and was rewarded a one-year, $3.75 million deal. That came after he sought a salary of $4.75 million, while the Capitals filed a request of $3 million.

Killorn’s situation is interesting, as the 26-year-old -- coming off a two-year, $5.1 million deal -- has been a terrific playoff performer for the Bolts over the last two years. He’s certainly deserving of a raise, but it will be difficult for GM Steve Yzerman to negotiate, as Yzerman also needs to reach new deals for RFAs Vladislav Namestnikov, and budding star Nikita Kucherov.
