The submission of these offers means the Canadiens have the right of first refusal to match any offer sheets from competing teams and officially retain negotiating rights.
NHL teams have until 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 7 to submit qualifying offers to restricted free agents, and these qualifying offers can be signed by RFAs once free agency opens at 12 p.m. ET on Oct. 9. Qualifying offers expire on Oct. 18.
