Top 10 NHL UFAs of 2022

Some of the league's elite talents are set to become UFA's at the end of the 2021-22 season, here are the top 10.

10. Jack Campbell

Despite sliding out of the Vezina conversation, Campbell is still having a fairly impressive season.

9. Darcy Kuemper

Kuemper (31), has proven consistently that he belongs in the elite goaltender conversation. This season with Colorado he has been nothing short of fantastic.

8. Evgeni Malkin

The ageing superstar is still struggling to stay healthy, however, at 35-years-old he still remains fairly consistent in points.

7. Bryan Rust

The 29-year-old Rust has been playing some of his best hockey of his career this season, however, will he still perform as well without Crosby and Guentzel on his line?

6. Patrice Bergeron

Fun fact about Bergeron, in the past 10 seasons, 1537 Selke trophy ballots have been submitted. Patrice Bergeron's name has been on 1411 (91.8%) of them.

The elite two-way centerman is getting older (36) but age hasn't taken a toll on his production yet.

5. John Klingberg

The 29-year-old Swedish defenseman has been racking up points since entering the NHL 8 years ago. Will he be on the move to pursue a Stanley Cup once summer rolls around?

4. Filip Forsberg

The 27-year-old winger has been scoring at his highest goals/game pace yet, and has propelled Nashville into playoff contention.

3. Nazem Kadri

Kadri surprised many this season, putting up points at a career-high rate with the surging Colorado Avalanche. At 31-years-old, will Colorado be willing to pay him at the end of this season?

2. Kris Letang

The 34-year-old defenseman is putting up points like its 2015 all over again. His three Stanley Cups worth of experience and back-end offensive talent will be tempting for many teams.

1. Johnny Gaudreau

At 28-years-old, Gaudreau is playing some of the best hockey of his career. He is about to pass the 100-point plateau for the first time in his career playing with a Stanley Cup contending Calgary Flames.
