In the National Hockey League (NHL), the free agent market has opened, allowing teams to strengthen their rosters with desired players.

According to CapFriendly, the first day of free agency set a historic record in the NHL. For the first time in history, contracts totaling over 1 billion dollars were signed in just one day. Overall, there were 160 transactions completed.

One of the most shocking moves of the day was the departure of Tampa Bay Lightning's leader and captain, Steven Stamkos, who signed a contract with the Nashville Predators. He agreed to a four-year deal worth eight million euros per year.
