Rangers restricted free-agent forwards Carl Hagelin and Mats Zuccarello are both arbitration eligible, and if they file Wednesday, neither can play in Europe. First-line center Derek Stepan is not eligible.

Jiri Hudler filed for salary arbitration in 2009 and then decided to play in the KHL. Don't know if the NHL and the KHL have a new agreement on that. The NHL and KHL have an agreement to honor their contracts. The KHL said filing for arbitration isn't a contract and they allowed Hudler to play in the KHL. The NHL contended Hudler filing for arbitration is the same as a contract. That was 4 years ago. The NHL didn't pursue it and Hudler returned in 2010. The NHL and KHL probably have reached common ground on a player filing for arbitration and then signing a contract in the KHL. Can't do it.

Justin Falk is also eligible

Clutterbuck’s annual $2.75 million salary-cap hit now officially gets the Islanders to the floor of $44 million, with restricted free agents Josh Bailey and Thomas Hickey still to sign. Bailey is eligible to file for salary arbitration today by 5 p.m., and if he doesn’t, the team can file hursday. Hickey is ineligible.
Hickey is eligible. He has 4 years.
