Rangers Choose Not To Qualify RFAs Clendening, Pirri & Skapski
As the July 1st free agency period cometh ever quickly, so to the deadline for teams to qualify impending restricted free agents. According to Steve Zipay of Newsday: Adam Clendening, Brandon Pirri & Mackenzie Skapski will not be qualified, thus becoming unrestricted free agents next week.
At deadline, Rangers qualify RFA winger Nicklas Jensen, but not Brandon Pirri, Adam Clendening, or "Buffalo Killer" Mackenzie Skapski.— Steve Zipay (@stevezipay) June 25, 2017
Jensen was tendered the minimum amount to retain his rights ($650,000), but not so were Clendening ($650,000), Pirri ($1,100,000), or Skapski ($696,500). The trio are now free to sign with any NHL team.
Presumably and invariably, restricted free agents Jesper Fast ($997,500) & Mika Zibanejad ($3,250,000) were qualified.
