NHL Prospects Whose Rights Are Expiring


As I try to do every year, here is what I could dig up in the way of prospects that need to be signed by their drafting teams or they will either become free agents or re-enter the draft. They are organized by what date their rights expire. Although I'm sure there are some mistakes, a lot of research and time went into this so don't be too harsh. If you spot a mistake or a missed player let me know because having a correct comprehensive list of all prospect rights expiring will be very useful in the very near future.

**If/when a player gets signed, they will be highlighted (ex: Highlight).
**If there is a rumor surrounding a prospect, they will be highlighted (ex: Highlight)
**If a player is confirmed to go unsigned, they will be highlighted (ex: Highlight)
