Qualifying Offer Calculator

  • Teams must extend a qualifying offer to a restricted free agent to retain negotiation rights.
    • A qualifying offer is an official Standard Player Contract (SPC) offer which shall be 1 year in length, and which can be subject to salary arbitration should the player be eligible.
    • Clubs have until the later of June 25th or the first Monday after the Entry Draft to submit Qualifying Offers.
    • Qualifying Offers apply to Group 2 and Group 4 free agents.
    • Submitting a Qualifying Offers gives the prior club the right of first refusal to match any offer sheet submitted, or receive draft pick compensation.
    • If the player rejects the qualifying offer, they remain an RFA and their rights are retained by the team.
    • If a player does not receive a qualifying offer, the player becomes a UFA.
  • The qualifying offer is calculated from the players base salary (NHL salary minus signing bonus), and at minimum must meet the seasons minimum salary requirements:
    • 110% of the base salary if the base salary is less than or equal to $660,000
    • 105% of the base salary if the base salary is greater than $660,000 or less than $1,000,000. However, this qualifying offer cannot exceed $1,000,000.
    • 100% of the base salary if the base salary is equal to or greater than $1,000,000.
    • CBA Reference 10.2 (a) (ii)
  • The qualifying offer must be a One-Way offer if the following three requirements are met (A goaltender is considered to have played a game if they are on the bench as a backup for this scenario):
    1. The player played in 180 NHL games in the previous three seasons (Prorating for the shortened 2012-13 season: 156 games if one of the three seasons is 2012-13).
    2. The player played in 60 NHL games in the previous season (36 if the previous season is 2012-13).
