NHL Rumors: Top 3 Free Agents Surpringsly Left Unsigned

NHL training camps open up very soon as we've seen the professional tryouts being handed out as of late. There's also a number of free agents who have yet to sign any type of agreement, here's the top three players left on the open market:

Evan Rodrigues

The latest: Rumblings have surrounded the Calgary Flames and Anaheim Ducks when it comes to Evan Rodrigues, however don't count out the Buffalo Sabres and Detroit Red Wings. All four teams could use some more offense and Rodrigues has the tools to contribute, showing last season with his 19 goals. E-Rod switched agents, he's coming off an 'underpaid' season, one in which he put up career-high numbers. Interesting he's still left on the open market as training camp is only days away.

Sonny Milano

The latest: The 26-year-old winger is another talented forward left unsigned and it's certainly become a touch head-scratching at this point. Milano also enjoyed a career season in 2021-22, recording 34 points in 66 games. The Ducks didn't qualify him, however it's curious that they wouldn't circle back on a cheaper one-year deal, much like we saw from the Pittsburgh Penguins with Danton Heinen. Milano is hopeful he can land a one-year contract and won't have to settle for a PTO. Teams to consider, the Flames, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ducks and Minnesota Wild.

PK Subban

The latest: Besides attending birthday parties and vacations overseas, we haven't seen the same type of content from PK Subban this summer. Normally he's busy posting training videos and showing all the work he's been putting in, however this summer hasn't been the same. The veteran blueliner apparently still wants to play hockey next season, where exactly that is, is anyone's guess at this point. Some feel the Montreal Canadiens could use some help on the right side, same with the Edmonton Oilers.

Don't cross off a reunion to New Jersey just yet as general manager Tom Fitzgerald has nothing but great things to say about Subban's impact on their young team.
