To reiterate the terms and rules, as defined in the CBA:

  • “Active roster” – a team must have between 20 and 23 players on its active roster. These players must be under contract (except in the case of amateur tryouts, like Brayden Schenn had in the 2009-2010 season)
  • “50 contract limit” – a team must have between 27 and 50 players under contract. There are some funky rules related to this, the main ones being that players playing in Europe (e.g. Moller) and players under the age of 20 still playing in juniors (e.g. Toffoli, Weal, Roach), even if under contract, don’t count against the limit.
  • “Reserve list” – a team may not have more than 90 players on its reserve list, which is the total of all players under contract and all unsigned draft-picks.


  • “exp.” indicates the year the player’s current contract expires. All contracts expire on 7/1 of that year. However, in the case of unsigned picks, it’s the year they must be signed by (two years after their draft year, or, in the case of college players, either the year they graduate or — if they don’t stay in school — four years after their draft year). Generally, college players must be signed by 8/15 of the year of their graduation, and juniors players must be signed by 6/1.
  • nxt. refers to the player’s free-agency status as of 7/1 of that year.
  • “dr” and “by” refers to the player’s draft year and draft team. Searching for a team name (three letter abbreviation) in parentheses (not brackets) will filter for all players drafted by that team. 
  • “pk” and “r” show the player’s draft position and draft round. The format is overall draft position, followed by a period, followed by the round selected. The logic behind this is that, since this column is the only one where a period appears, if you enter, for example, “.1″,in the search window, the chart will filter out everyone but the first round picks.
  • “aq/sgn” refers to the year in which the player signed their last contract with the Kings (if applicable) or was acquired by the Kings (if applicable). The team from which the player was acquired, (or, if UFA, the player’s previous team) is in brackets. As this is the only column in which brackets appear, you can use brackets in the search window to filter for players acquired from a certain team (e.g. [PHI]). Double brackets indicate that the player was signed as a UFA and previously played for that team. (Simply putting “[[” in the search window will filter for all players signed as UFAs, regardless of team.)
  • “wvxp” indicates the year in which (on 7/1) the player’s waiver-exemption expires, and “gms” the number of games played left before the player’s waiver-exemption expires, whichever comes first. The listed number of games remaining is accurate as of January 18, 2013.
  • BORN is birthday.
  • CAP is cap hit, in thousands. 
  • HT and WT indicate the player’s height in inches and weight in pounds.
  • (1), (0) etc. — the numbers in parentheses after a player’s team name indicates the number of years of eligibility he has in juniors or college, as applicable. Note, however, that some players (e.g. players drafted out of Europe, not out of juniors — Kitsyn comes to mind) are able to play in the AHL even if they still have junior eligibility remaining. Also, juniors are allowed to carry “over-age” players and this can allow a player with a (0) to stay in juniors after he’s turned 20. (NOTE: sometimes I leave out these numbers, just warning you.)
  • u — unsigned.
  • undr — undrafted. Searching for “undr” filters for all undrafted players. Searching for “und” will give you unintended results, like college players from UND (Forbort) or players with the letters und in their names.

      Admiring your own handiwork, or Dean’s? ;-)

      Actually, I look at that table and 6 names jump out me: Muzzin, Clifford, Voynov, Martinez, Lewis and Bernier. I know that the Kings should be able to keep all of them without too much trouble because they’re RFA, but they form a sizable demographic bulge when you consider that losing any one of them would be a significant defection. I also have this nightmare that someone is going to make an offer sheet for Bernier. Someone please tell me that my concerns are irrational, and that it will all work out fine.

      Yep. Still playing. Still Kings property. If he ever decides to play in North America. Which he won’t.

      UFA, unsigned. I’ll put him back if he signs. Same with Penner.
