Free agency opened over three weeks ago, and there are still a handful of impact players unsigned. Here’s a look at the best remaining free agents alongside their 2021-22 statistics.
Top 6 Remaining NHL Free Agents
6. Evan Rodrigues
It’s a little surprising Rodrigues hasn’t cashed in on his career-best showing yet. He can play all three forward positions and bounce up and down the lineup, so there should be interest in his versatility and ability to both drive possession and contribute as a secondary scorer.
19 goals, 24 assists, 56.9 CF%, 57.7 xGF%, 82 games played
5. Phil Kessel
The two-time Stanley Cup champion’s next goal will be his 400th in the league, and it would be next to statistically impossible for Kessel not to improve on last year’s 4.6 shooting percentage. In a supporting role, Kessel makes sense for a playoff-bound team.
8 goals, 44 assists, 44.4 CF%, 42.4 xGF%, 82 games played
