Chris Campoli and Viktor Stalberg were amongst the 23 players across the league who elected for salary arbitration today, according to the NHLPA website. Michael Frolik is not eligible for arbitration. No hearing date has been set for either of them, but all hearings will take place in Toronto between July 20 and August 4.
They can avoid arbitration if they are re-signed before their hearing date. The Sun-Times quotes Bowman as feeling “confident” that all three of the Blackhawks’ restricted free agents will be re-signed to the team in “short order.”
