Juuse Saros the Nashville Predators is one of 17 restricted free agents to file pay arbitration on Sunday, according to the NHL Players’ Association.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper scored a 21-11-1 in 36 games (35 starts) last season with 2.28 goals conceded, 0.927 hits and three shutouts. He was 2-4 with 2.78 GAA and 0.921 save percent in six post-season games when the Predators lost to the Carolina Hurricanes in the Stanley Cup First Round.

Notable players that have been submitted include Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ross Colton, and defensemen Adam Pelech (New York Islanders), Neal Pionk (Winnipeg Jets) and Vince Dunn (Seattle Kraken).

The deadline for notification of club-elected pay arbitration procedures is 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday. Salary arbitration negotiations will take place from August 11th to 26th. A player can sign a contract with his current team at any time prior to a referee’s decision.

In the past off-season, 26 restricted free agents filed for arbitration. One player’s salary was set by a referee (Tyler Bertuzzi, Detroit Red Wings). The other 25 each reached an agreement before its scheduled hearing.
