While Sean Monahan was awarded with a long-term, big-money deal Friday, the statuses of other prominent restricted free agents remain up in the air as August draws to a close.

The list is headlined by Johnny Gaudreau and Nikita Kucherov, both of whom broke out in big ways this past season.

There are several other notable names, however.

Player Team Position Age
Johnny Gaudreau Calgary LW 22
Nikita Kucherov Tampa Bay RW 22
Tobias Rieder Arizona LW 22
Valeri Nichushkin Dallas RW 20
Ryan Strome NY Islanders C 22
Rickard Rakell Anaheim C 22
Zemgus Girgensons Buffalo C 22
Jacob Trouba Winnipeg D 21
Hampus Lindholm Anaheim D 21
Rasmus Ristolainen Buffalo D 21
Cody Ceci Ottawa D 22
Dmitry Orlov Washington D 24
Nikita Nesterov Tampa Bay D 22

NHL training camps are set to begin Sept. 12, and the World Cup of Hockey – which unsigned players will be able to participate in – runs from Sept. 17 to Oct. 1.

The NHL regular season begins Oct. 12, with or without these names under contract.
