Johnson, Parayko, Tatar lead off arbitration hearings beginning July 20
That's when the likes of Tyler Johnson, Colton Parayko, and Tomas Tatar are scheduled to take their cases before an arbitrator, with the three hearings set for July 20.
The three are among the 27 players set to go before arbitration this summer. Thirty players filed by Wednesday's deadline, but three cases have already reached a resolution.
That includes Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk, New York Rangers winger Jesper Fast, and Buffalo Sabres forward Johan Larsson. All three players received substantial raises above their qualifying offers:
Teams and players can continue to negotiate in the days leading up to the hearing, and in the following deliberation period before a verdict is announced.
That was the case last offseason, when Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie was the lone player to reach the hearing stage of the 25 NHLers who filed for arbitration. However, Barrie and the Avalanche later agreed to a four-year extension before a verdict was announced.
Here is the full schedule of hearings:
