The National Hockey League’s Players’ Association announced on Tuesday the dates for arbitration hearings for 26 players who are restricted free agents this offseason.

The Buffalo Sabres have three restricted free agents that are scheduled to meet with a league arbiter this fall, which includes forwards Sam Reinhart and Victor Olofsson, as well as goalie Linus Ullmark.

Here is the schedule for all three hearings for the Sabres:

- Monday, Oct. 26 - Linus Ullmark
- Tuesday, Oct. 27 - Sam Reinhart
- Wednesday, Nov. 4 - Victor Olofsson

Just because a player has filed for salary arbitration does not mean that they will officially meet with a league arbiter when scheduled. The team and the players can negotiate a contract and sign a new deal at any point before or during their meeting.

The NHL will hold their arbitration hearings between Oct. 20 and Nov. 8.
