Jacob Trouba of the New York Rangers was one of 40 NHL restricted free agents who filed for salary arbitration July 5, according to the NHL Players' Association.
Other notable players who filed include New Jersey Devils defenseman Will Butcher and Calgary Flames forward Sam Bennett.
Salary arbitration hearings will be held from July 20 through Aug. 4. A player can sign a contract with his team any time before an arbitrator's ruling.
St. Louis Blues goalie Jordan Binnington agreed to a two-year contract to avoid a salary arbitration hearing that was scheduled for July 20.
Last offseason, 44 restricted free agents filed for arbitration. Trouba, then with the Jets; Ottawa Senators defenseman Cody Ceci, now with the Toronto Maple Leafs; and Calgary Flames defenseman Brett Kulak, now with the Montreal Canadiens, were the only players to have their salary determined by an arbitrator. Anaheim Ducks defenseman Brandon Montour, now with the Buffalo Sabres, had a hearing but signed before the arbitrator's ruling. The other 40 each came to an agreement before his scheduled hearing.
