Edmonton Oilers forward Jesse Puljujarvi and Dallas Stars defenseman Julius Honka won't be suiting up in the NHL this season.

The pair of restricted free agents needed to sign contracts before Sunday's 5 p.m. ET deadline to be deemed eligible to play any games this campaign.

Both players were seeking trades from the teams that drafted them, but Oilers general manager Ken Holland and Stars GM Jim Nill weren't able to find deals to their liking.
