Happy first day of free agency! A few pieces of business before we get to the first official tracker of 2016:
-Add Raman Hrabarenka to the unrestricted free agent list, as he was not tendered a qualifying offer by New Jersey before Monday’s 5 PM deadline. Reid Boucher and Reece Scarlett were tendered offers, and remain RFAs.
-Need a guide to who’s available on the minor league free agent market? You have two sources to use: the Chirps from Center Ice official Big Board (which I had an assist in helping put together), or Highland Park Hockey’s list.
-Finally, mark your calendars for July 12th-16th, for the annual New Jersey development camp. I’ll have more details on that later.
And now, your first scorecard for the summer:
