With free agency underway, NHL.com takes a closer look at the top remaining restricted free agents.
A restricted free agent can receive an offer sheet contract from another team, which forward Sebastian Aho did from the Montreal Canadiens on July 1. His team can match the contract (which the Carolina Hurricanes did with Aho) or receive draft-pick compensation based on its value. Any restricted free agent who does not sign by Dec. 1 cannot play for the remainder of the NHL season.
