NHL free agency 2020: Complete list of all 31 teams’ UFA, RFA players

Soccer/Tennis/Hockey

When the 2019-20 NHL season was paused , the status of free agency was in flux. We now know the signing period will begin at 12 p.m. ET on Oct. 9.

That’s when unrestricted free agents can sign with new teams, restricted free agents with arbitration rights have their next contracts dictated by a third party and general managers play the fun game of “should we or should we not do an offer sheet?” (thanks, Marc Bergevin!).

This season’s list of UFAs is an intriguing one, with the likes of Alex Pietrangelo, Taylor Hall, Torey Krug and Braden Holtby among the top players on the market. Have we seen the last of Zdeno Chara and Joe Thornton? Who is this year’s Sebastian Aho?

Below is a list of each team’s major pending free agents for the upcoming free agency period.
