An early look at next year’s free agent crop

Are you bored with the 2010 NHL free agency period and are looking ahead to next year? We’ve put together an extremely early list of 2011 unrestricted NHL free agents.

The list does not included players who have yet to sign an NHL contract for the 2010-11 season. Nor does it include players who have signed to play in Europe or Russia for next season.

We will periodically update the free agent list as players sign throughout the season.

Due to the size of the entry, you will have to click on the following link to view the 2011 NHL Free Agents.
