From Ken Campbell of The Hockey News:

Spaling’s arbitration hearing is scheduled for tomorrow. His case and PK Subban’s (which we wrote about earlier today) are the only ones still to be resolved. (The only one to actually be heard by an arbitrator was Vladimir Sobotka’s, and that was a unique case.)

Spaling was part of the James Neal trade between Pittsburgh and Nashville in June. The 25-year-old forward had 13 goals and 19 assists in 71 games for the Predators last season, and Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford called him a “very versatile player” who was a “very important” part of the Neal deal.
