Neither Fiala nor Sanheim were among the restricted free agents who filed for player-elected arbitration by Sunday's deadline, but their respective teams decided to move forward with the process.
The deadline for team-elected salary arbitration notification was at 5 p.m. ET Monday. Hearings are set to be held from Aug. 11-26.
Both Fiala and Sanheim can continue to work toward a deal in the meantime.
Fiala, 25, registered 40 points across 50 games this past campaign. He just wrapped up a two-year deal that carried an average annual value of $3 million.
Sanheim put up 15 points in 55 contests during the 2020-21 season. The 25-year-old defenseman finished a two-year pact with a cap hit of $3.25 million.
