Day 1 of Free Agent Frenzy saw the NHL’s 32 teams spend a collective $783,600,000 in total contract dollars over 161 signings.
But despite the flurry of signings on Wednesday, there are still a number of notable players available on the market.
Brandon Saad had 15 goals and 24 points in 44 games with the Colorado Avalanche last season, including seven goals in the playoffs. A two-time Stanley Cup champion, the 28-year-old left winger has 184 goals and 371 points in 632 career NHL games split between the Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets and Avalanche.
David Krejci, who has spent his entire 15-year NHL career with the Boston Bruins, also remains without a contract. In 51 games last season, the veteran centre recorded eight goals and 44 points, averaging 17:08 of ice time. In 962 career NHL games, Krejci has 215 goals and 730 points. He won the Stanley Cup with the Bruins in 2011.
Kyle Palmieri recorded 10 goals and 21 points in 51 games last season split between the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders. A first-round pick (26th overall) by the Anaheim Ducks at the 2009 NHL Draft, the 30-year-old right wing scored at least 24 goals in five straight seasons prior to 2020-21.
