One of those players is Pavel Zacha, who will be a restricted free agent with arbitration rights and one year of team control remaining until he is eligible for unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2023.

Devils' Pavel Zacha: Disappointing year despite new high

Zacha totaled a career-best 36 points thanks to 15 goals and 21 assists over 70 appearances in 2021-22. Despite the new personal scoring best, Zacha's season left a lot to be desired. He took a step back relative to his previous campaign, when Zacha needed only 50 appearances to rack up 17 goals and 35 points. The Devils will likely re-sign the restricted free agent this offseason and plug Zacha back into a middle-six role next year.
