  • F C.J. Smith $832,500/$874,125

Qualifying offer formula: All contracts are for the 2018-19 season. Players receive a 10 percent raise if their NHL salary is equal or less than $660,000 in 2017-18, a 5 percent raise if their salary is $660,000 to $1 million or an equal salary if the player made $1 million or more.

General Manager Jason Botterill said Monday the team is negotiating a long-term extension with Reinhart and did not qualify Wilson to avoid arbitration but will look to re-sign him on Sunday, when unrestricted free agency opens.
