The Edmonton Oilers did the expected this afternoon, qualifying three of their RFA’s (Justin Schultz, Brandon Davidson and Tyler Pitlick) while walking:
- G Tyler Bunz
- G Frans Tuohimaa
- D Keith Aulie
- C Kellen Lain
- L Matt Fraser
- L Curtis Hamilton
- L Brad Ross
No surprises there, the Oilers 50-man list is now at 43 with Connor McDavid and others still to come.
Hurricanes do not give qualifying offer to Jared Staal and Riley Nash.

Surprising based on his career progress, suspect another NHL team will sign him during free agency. More later.
