Former free agent Christian Ehrhoff recently found a new NHL team, but other free agents remain unsigned.
Notable UFAs still available.
Cody Franson, defenseman. It’s been over a month since Franson claimed he’s spoken with five or six teams, notably the Boston Bruins. It’s widely assumed he’s seeking a long-term deal, with salary speculated at between $4.5 – $6 million annually.
Stephen Weiss, center. Since he was bought out by the Detroit Red Wings in late June, Weiss has scarcely been mentioned in the rumor mill.
Marek Zidlicky, defenseman. Several weeks have passed since Zidlicky was linked to the Boston Bruins. The Columbus Blue Jackets could be interested now that Ehrhoff has signed with the Kings.
Brad Boyes, right wing. Like Weiss, there’s been little mention of Boyes since he was bought out by the Florida Panthers nearly two months ago.
Jiri Tlusty, right wing. Tlusty was recently suggested as a checking-line center candidate for the Washington Capitals, but he’s spent most of his career playing right wing.
Martin Havlat, left wing. A recent report out of Ottawa claims the Senators could bring the oft-injured Havlat back on a professional tryout contract.
Curtis Glencross, left wing. A rumor recently surfaced claiming Glencross might sign a PTO with the Colorado Avalanche.
Lubomir Visnovsky, defenseman. It’s likely the oft-injured blueliner could be continuing his playing career in Europe.
Erik Cole, left wing. His playing career could be over following a late-season back injury.
Dainius Zubrus, center. Recently bought out by the New Jersey Devils, Zubrus hopes to sign with another NHL club for the upcoming season.
Lee Stempniak, right wing. Stempniak recently said he’d hoped to re-sign with the Winnipeg Jets, but they’re looking to give spots to their younger players.
Olli Jokinen, center. It appears Jokinen’s long NHL career is drawing to a close.
Brenden Morrow, left wing. Like Jokinen, Morrow’s career could be over. He could end up accepting a tryout contract.
Jordan Leopold, defenseman. Leopold is still training in preparation for the upcoming season, but he recently acknowledged the possibility his career could be over.
Michael Ryder, right wing. Not a peep about Ryder since the UFA market opened on July 1.
Anton Volchenkov, defense. Another oft-injured veteran, Volchenkov could also face the end of his NHL playing career.
