As long as their NHL teams continue to qualify them, they retain those rights for a while. I'm not sure how long, though, to be honest.

I'm not going to add RFAs playing overseas because there would be just too many players to list (Anaheim has guys like Petteri Wirtanen and Petri Kontiola whom we'll likely never see in the NHL again but might still be their property).

Carolina RFA G Mike Murphy announced on twitter that he has signed in the KHL for next year. No team listed yet.
