With only the official ratification of the CBA standing in the way of NHL hockey, here’s a look at the top 10 unrestricted free agents available when training camps are expected to open Sunday.
1. Petr Sykora. The 36-year-old forward showed up at camp last year with the New Jersey Devils, earned a contract and became a contributing member of a team that went to the Stanley Cup final. He played all 82 games and scored 21 goals.
2. Jason Arnott. The 38-year-old had 34 points for the St. Louis Blues last year. He’s a good depth player for a team looking for a veteran presence.
