Without a new Collective Bargaining Agreement hashed out in the next 17 days, nearly every single NHL player will become a free agent at 11:59 p.m. on September 15.

For most, that means the ability to bolt for Europe, to most professional leagues start playing games this week.

From last year’s roster, there are only 9 players who are not permitted to play in Europe:
ENTRY-LEVEL PLAYERS (6):
Brayden Schenn (age 21)
Sean Couturier (19)
Eric Wellwood (22)
Zac Rinaldo (22)
Erik Gustafsson (23)
Brandon Manning (22)

INJURED PLAYERS (3):
Chris Pronger (post-concussion symptoms)
Andrej Meszaros (Achilles)
Andreas Lilja (hip)


All the rest
