Therefore, all eight players have received an offer, including one acquired through a transaction in 2022.
Ty Smilanic qualified by the Trois-Rivières Lions
It should be noted that Ty Smilanic was indeed acquired through a transaction by the Montreal Canadiens in the Ben Chiarot trade, which sent him to the Florida Panthers.
Smilanic was a 3rd-round pick of the Panthers in the 2020 draft, and he accumulated 7 points in 31 games this season with the Lions.
Here are the details of the transaction:
"In Montreal -

Ty Smilanic
4th-round pick 2022
1st-round pick 2023

In Florida -

Ben Chiarot"

The Panthers' 2023 1st-round pick was later traded by Kent Hughes in the Alex Newhook transaction with the Colorado Avalanche.
