The NHLPA announced that 40 NHL players have elected for salary arbitration ahead of the July 6 deadline. That number quickly dropped to 39 after the Tampa Bay Lightning came to terms with forward Cedric Paquette.
Locally, MacKenzie Weegar was the only member of the Florida Panthers to elect salary arbitration. Ian McCoshen, Anthony Greco, Dominic Toninato and Maxim Mamin did not.
Weegar, 25, played the 2018-19 season on a one-year contract that paid him $900K.
Teams can still negotiate new deals with the players before hearings take place on July 20. The hearings will run until August 4.
