Group III is unrestricted free agency. Players reach Group III status at age 27, or after playing in the NHL for 7 years. The player must play 10 or more games in the NHL for it to count as a year toward Group III status.
A player can also become Group III if they don't play a certain number of NHL games by a certain age. Off the top of my head, I can't remember the exact numbers.
All of this information is in the CBA. Just do a search for NHL CBA and you can pull up the PDF file.
