Florida Panthers defenseman MacKenzie Weegar was one of 26 NHL players to elect salary arbitration.

Since finishing his entry-level contract, Weegar has played the last three seasons on a series of one-year deals and made $1.6 million last year after agreeing to terms with the Cats before his arbitration hearing was held.

During the truncated 2019-20 season, Weegar, 26, played in 45 regular games and set new career-high in goals (7) and points (18) while matching his career-high in assists (11).

He played in all four games of Florida’s qualifying round loss to the New York Islanders.

Here are the other 25 players who elected arbitration.

Boston Bruins: Matt Grzelcyk

Buffalo Sabres: Victor Olofsson, Sam Reinhart, Linus Ullmark

Calgary Flames: Andrew Mangiapane

Carolina Hurricanes: Clark Bishop, Haydn Fleury, Warren Foegele, Gustav Forsling
