NHL free agency 2021: Complete list of all 31 teams’ UFA, RFA players

Like everything else in 2021, the NHL’s shopping season does not begin until later than the norm. This year, free agency begins on July 28.

The date circled is when unrestricted free agents begin signing with new teams, restricted free agents with arbitration rights begin having their next contracts dictated by a third party and general managers start playing the fun game of, “Should we or should we not do an offer sheet?”

This season’s list of unrestricted free agents is intriguing, with the likes of Taylor Hall, Alex Ovechkin, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins among the top players on the market. Have we seen the last of Zdeno Chara, Joe Thornton and the NHL’s leader in career games, Patrick Marleau? Will we see an offer sheet this year with Elias Pettersson and Brady Tkachuk among the notable RFAs?

It should be noted that this year is also a smidge different: The NHL’s newest club, the Kraken, do have an opportunity to sign players in advance; the team can chat with UFAs and restricted free agents as early as 10 a.m. ET on July 18 and then ink them beginning on July 21. However, if they do announce a signing, it counts as the player they select from his 2021 NHL team in the expansion draft.

Below is a list of each team’s major free agents.
