Salary Arbitration is a matter of when RFA's who are eligible, use a third-party mediator to determine their next contract's value.

The player's value is determined through a negotiation process that is typically intense, as players like Jeremy Swayman can recall. Since the NHL teams own the player's rights, there's not much leeway for each player to negotiate.

A hearing will be scheduled between the player and the team, and the salary will be determined in that time frame.
The evidence that is allowed to be presented during these hearings includes a player's performance/statistics, injury history, length of service, leadership qualities, and contribution to the team's results.

Teams/players cannot use other players' salaries or the state of the team's cap situation during these discussions.

This year, 14 players have elected to enter arbitration with their own NHL teams, including Martin Necas of the Carolina Hurricanes who was once thought, to be a Chicago Blackhawk recently.
Who is eligible to file for salary arbitration?

Restricted free agents are the only kind of players who can file for salary arbitration.

Players 18-20 must have four years of NHL experience before they are eligible, someone that is 21 must have three, a player 22-23 years old must have two and a player 24 or older must have 1. A player earns a year of NHL experience by playing in at least 10 NHL contests.

The determination dates for the 14 players who filed, will be July 20th to August 4th.
