Unrestricted Free Agents - Group 3 (UFA3)

The player has qualified for Group 3 Free Agency (age 27 or older or with at least seven Accrued Seasons) and is an Unrestricted Free Agent.

Unrestricted Free Agents - Group 6 (UFA6)

Player qualifies for unrestricted free agency, having met the requirements for Group 6 free agency. This group is defined as players whose contracts have expired, are age 25 or older, have completed three or more professional seasons, and (i) in the case of a player other than a goaltender, have played less than 80 NHL games (regular-season and playoff), or (ii) in the case of a goaltender, have played less than 28 NHL games (regular-season and playoff). Please note that these amounts are subject to pro-rating due to the 48-game season in 2012-13.

Unrestricted Free Agents (UFA)

The player was not tendered a qualifying offer and is therefore an Unrestricted Free Agent not subject to a right to match or draft choice compensation.
