CONTRACT INFORMATION

A player that is a restricted free agent (RFA) has reached the end of their initial entry-level contract but is not yet an unrestricted free agent. Their rights are still held by the NHL team.

A player is an unrestricted free agent (UFA) if older than 25 (or after 7 years, whichever comes first) and his contract ends. UFAs can sign with any team.

All new players, under the age of 25, are required to sign an entry-level contract. Entry-level contracts are three years if the player is age 18-21, two years of age 22-24, and one year if age 24.

If a player signs an AHL contract, then he is not eligible to play in the NHL.

KEY DATES

2022 NHL Entry Draft - July 7 and 8: The 2022 NHL Entry Draft will be held over two days in July. The first round will be held on Thursday, July 7th, while the second through seventh rounds will be held on Friday, July 8th. Both days will take place at the Bell Centre in Montréal, Québec. The Rangers will either select 30th, 31st, or 32nd overall depending on their playoff result.

Qualifying Offers - July 11: NHL teams must send a Qualifying Offer by the Monday following the NHL Draft (July 11, 2022) in order to retain the rights to any Restricted Free Agent. 

Teams are not required to send Qualifying Offers to RFAs. RFAs that do not receive a Qualifying Offer become UFAs on July 13, the opening of NHL Free Agency.

The qualifying offer is calculated from the players base salary (NHL salary minus signing bonus), and at a minimum must meet the season minimum salary requirements:

110% of the base salary if the base salary is less than or equal to the league minimum. 

105% of the base salary if the base salary is greater than the league minimum or less than $1,000,000. However, this qualifying offer cannot exceed $1,000,000.

100% of the base salary if the base salary is equal to or greater than $1,000,000.
