2021 NHL Free Agency Tracker: Full List of Transfers, Top Players Available

The 2021 offseason is shaping up to be short but busy.

With the expansion draft for the Seattle Kraken and NHL Draft in the rearview mirror, the next step on the road to opening training camps in September is free agency.

This year, the signing period begins at 12 p.m. ET on July 28 and there are several large fish available to fish for. The only question is: will they be tempted to see new waters? The salary cap remains fixed at $ 81.5 million, which could mean that the bait is not that great for most; although, the league minimum has risen to $ 750,000 (from $ 700,000).

There are quite a few stars in the franchise as well, namely Elias Pettersson, Brady Tkachuk, and Rasmus Dahlin, who can be the kind of person who takes risks and offers.
