The 2019 crop of arbitration-eligible restricted free agents had their potential hearing dates set on Tuesday, the NHLPA announced.
Among the most prominent players on the list is St. Louis Blues netminder Jordan Binnington, who's scheduled for a hearing on July 20 if he and the Stanley Cup champions don't agree to a deal beforehand.
Here's a look at the dates for some other notable players:
|Joel Armia||Candiens||July 20|
|Andrew Copp||Jets||July 20|
|Neal Pionk||Jets||July 24|
|Oskar Sundqvist||Blues||July 24|
|Jacob Trouba||Rangers||July 25|
|Sam Bennett||Flames||July 27|
|David Rittich||Flames||July 29|
|J.T. Compher||Avalanche||July 31|
|Arturri Lehkonen||Canadiens||August 3|
|Joel Edmundson||Blues||August 4|
Traditionally, it's rare for any case to end up requiring a third-party arbitrator. Last summer, 40 of 44 players ultimately signed with their respective teams before reaching their meeting dates.
