NHL free agency 2020: Complete list of all 31 teams' UFA, RFA players 1

While the 2019-20 NHL season is still paused and in flux, free agency still looms. 

For now, July 1 is the expected start of the window when unrestricted free agents can sign with new teams, restricted free agents with arbitration rights have their next contracts dictated by a third party and general managers play the fun game of “should we or should we not do an offer sheet?” (thanks, Marc Bergevin!). 

This season’s list of UFAs is an intriguing one with the likes of Alex Pietrangelo, Taylor Hall, Torey Krug and Braden Holtby among the top players on the market. Will this paused season be the last time we saw Zdeno Chara and Joe Thornton lace them up? Who is this year’s Sebastian Aho? Every team also has to look internally and decide on whether they should re-sign or let loose a player while checking on who is available.

Below is a list of each team’s major pending free agents for the upcoming free agency period.
