On Friday 14 players filed for salary arbitration ahead of the deadline, allowing them to seek league intervention on their next deal.

While unrestricted free agents have complete control of their futures, restricted free agents have limited options. One option for restricted free agents is to file for salary arbitration with their club. This allows the two parties to go through a hearing, where an independent arbitrator will make a final decision.
Friday it was announced 14 players have opted to take their clubs to arbitration. Elliotte Friedman revealed the following list:
Jake Christiansen (Columbus Blue Jackets)
Connor Dewar (Toronto Maple Leafs)
Jack Drury (Carolina Hurricanes)
Ty Emberson (San Jose Sharks)
Jet Greaves (Columbus Blue Jackets)
Ryan Lindgren (New York Rangers)
Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (Buffalo Sabres)
Beck Malenstyn (Buffalo Sabres)
Kirill Marchenko (Columbus Blue Jackets)
J.J. Moser (Tampa Bay Lightning)
Martin Necas (Carolina Hurricanes)
Spencer Stastney (Nashville Predators)
Joe Veleno (Detroit Red Wings)
Oliver Wahlstrom (New York Islanders)

Most notably on this list are likely Martin Necas and Ryan Lindgren who have both been mentioned in trade conversations recently. Of note, players who file for arbitration are not allowed to negotiate deals with other teams. This makes players such as Necas, ineligible to sign an offer sheet should one be presented.
Teams have a deadline of tomorrow to file for team opted salary arbitration.
