According to PuckPedia.com, 641 NHL free agents will be available on July 1, divided into unrestricted and restricted groups. Of these players, 27 will be over the age of 35, which means some of them will be looking for their final contracts and one more shot at the Stanley Cup, and others may consider retirement.

There’s a small group of players over 37 who may be skating in their final NHL games during these next two weeks in the 2023-24 season. Let’s look at them here.
