ECHL announces Players with Qualifying Offers

The ECHL on Monday released the list of Players who received a valid qualifying offer from ECHL teams by the July 7 deadline.Players who had already signed a contract by July 7 did not need to receive a qualifying offer.Each team was entitled to reserve the rights to a maximum of eight qualified players. Of the eight qualified players, no more than four could be veterans (260 regular season professional hockey games played as of the start of the upcoming 2023-24 season). Players on open qualifying offers cannot be traded.The qualifying offer must remain open for acceptance until July 22 at which time the qualifying offer becomes null and void and the team may sign the qualified player to any salary or may elect to take no further action. Teams that extend a valid qualifying offer to a non-veteran player shall retain the rights to that qualified player for one playing season.A team that extends a valid qualifying offer to a veteran player, or to a goaltender who has played more than 180 regular-season games, will retain the rights to that player until July 22. After July 22, if the veteran player or goaltender is not signed to a contract by the team, the player shall be deemed a restricted free agent and shall be entitled to seek and secure offers of employment from other ECHL teams. Restricted free agents may not be traded. When a restricted free agent receives a contract offer from a team other than the team with the player’s rights and the restricted free agent wishes to accept the contract offer, the restricted free agent and the offering member must, within 24 hours, notify the ECHL, the team with the player’s rights and the Professional Hockey Players’ Association. The member with the player’s rights shall have seven days after the date it is notified to exercise its right to match the contract offer.If a restricted free agent is not signed to either an offer sheet or a contract by an ECHL team by August 8, the player shall be deemed an unrestricted free agent. Adirondack Thunder – Jake Theut, Ivan Chukarov, Matt Slick, Matt Stief, Kyle Hallbauer, Jake Ryczek, Patrick Grasso Allen Americans – Nick Albano, Aidan Brown, Chad Butcher, Hank Crone, Mikael Robidoux, Stephen Baylis Atlanta Gladiators – Derek Topatigh, Tim Davison, Sanghoon Shin, Gabe Guertler, Michael Turner Cincinnati Cyclones – Mark Sinclair, Jake Murray, Sean Allen, Zack Andrusiak, Luka Burzan, Patrick Polino, Lincoln Griffin, Michal Mrazik Florida Everblades – Cole Moberg, Brandon Hickey, Sean Josling, Logan Lambdin, Oliver Chau Fort Wayne Komets – Rylan Parenteau, Jake Johnson, Jacob Graves, Marcus McIvor, Oliver Cooper, Matt Alvaro, Tye Felhaber Greenville Swamp Rabbits – Luke Richardson, Ryan Bednard, Max Martin, Miles Gendron, Evan Wardley, Bryce Reddick, Dallas Gerads Idaho Steelheads – Jake Kupsky, Casey Johnson, Jade Miller, Justin Misiak, Colton Kehler, Wade Murphy, Jack Becker Indy Fuel – Cam Gray, Zach Vinnell, Cam Bakker, Kirill Chaika, Matt Watson, Luke McInnis, Chad Yetman, Nate Pionk Iowa Heartlanders – Justin Wells, Clayton Phillips, Bo Hanson, Riese Zmolek, Zach White, Tommy Parrottino, Michael Pastujov, Mason McCarty Jacksonville Icemen – Jacob Friend, Tim Theocharidis, Brandon Fortunato, Garret Cockerill, Christopher Brown, Ara Nazarian, Craig Martin, Ben Hawerchuk Kalamazoo Wings – Justin Murray, Kyle Rhodes, Nolan Kneen, Raymond Brice, Kobe Roth, Luke Lynch, Kody McDonald, Luke Morgan Kansas City Mavericks – Shane Starrett, Elias Rosen, Tommy Muck, Jordan Sambrook, Loren Ulett, A.J.
