Restricted free agents eligible for arbitration will make their case beginning July 20.

Leading off the offseason proceedings includes Montreal Canadiens center Phillip Danault, San Jose Sharks forward Chris Tierney, Dallas Stars winger Devin Shore, and Winnipeg Jets blue-liner Jacob Trouba.

The four are among the 37 players whose arbitration dates were announced by the NHLPA on Thursday. Initially, 44 players filed, but seven have already settled, counting Trevor van Riemsdyk, Matt Nieto, Dmitrij Jaskin, Oskar Sundqvist, Colin Miller, Alex Lyon, and Connor Hellebuyck.

Teams and players can continue to negotiate up until their scheduled hearing. Last year, only one arbitration case – involving Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt – went through with a hearing, where he was awarded a two-year, $4.5-million agreement.
