This Summer Is Weird. We post this before the NHL season is technically over, before NHL contracts technically expire and even before the return-to-play memorandum is approved. Some of these players’ statuses will probably move at some point.
The usual color code: Black=unsigned. Blue=re-signed with NYI/BST. Red=signed elsewhere in North America. Green=signed in Europe. Italics means it’s unannounced, but either we’re reporting it or some other semi-official source has it done. Split color means there’s some kind of report saying it’s happening. Remember, everyone except Group II is unrestricted. (And remember, stray Roman numerals are because I’m old, because the new CBA uses Arabic numerals. And yes, ever since, I have left those Roman numerals in deliberately, just to make the joke.) (V)-AHL veteran (more than 260 games played NHL/AHL/IHL/Euro elite); only five permitted to dress per game. (V-320)-AHL veteran with not more than 320 games played; one permitted as an exemption if five other veterans are dressed.
