Fantasy: Potential unrestricted free agents in 2019

Karlsson, Seguin, Wheeler can hit market next July 1; Panarin, Bobrovsky entering contract years for Blue Jackets

by Pete Jensen @NHLJensen / NHL.com Senior Fantasy Editor

NHL.com has identified the fantasy-relevant players at each position that can become UFAs on July 1, 2019, along with their final Yahoo rank from the 2017-18 season. These players can shake up the landscape production-wise in their contract years, especially if any are traded before or during this season -- not to mention if some hit the market next offseason. Fantasy owners should use this list as a basis for team evaluation, keeper decisions and offseason draft research. For more fantasy coverage, visit NHL.com/Fantasy.

NOTE: Players are listed in order of where they went in NHL.com's mock draft for 2018-19. ... Players who recently signed one-year contracts (e.g. Mark Stone, Petr Mrazek, Robin Lehner, Joe Thornton) have been excluded from this list.
