NHL players who have filed for arbitration will have hearings in Toronto through Aug. 4.

William Karlsson is the final restricted free agent with a hearing scheduled, according to the NHL Players' Association. The 25-year-old forward will have his hearing Saturday if he and the Vegas Golden Knights do not reach agreement on a contract.

The arbitrator would have 48 hours to render a decision after the hearing is held. Karlsson and Vegas could agree to a contract any time before then.

Karlsson had NHL career highs in goals (43), assists (35), points (78) and rating (plus-49) last season for Vegas.
