The Colorado Avalanche have elected to take centre Ryan O'Reilly to salary arbitration.
The club had until 5pm et on Sunday to file and has decided to bring the case before a mediator.
O'Reilly made $6.5 million last season in the second year of a back-end-loaded contract.
The deal arose out of an offer sheet O'Reilly signed with the Calgary Flames prior to the lockout-shortened 2012-13 NHL season. The Avalanche decided to match the offer instead of losing O'Reilly's services and as such must now make him a qualifying offer of $6.5 million to retain his rights.
The Winnipeg Jets filed club-elected salary arbitration on restricted free agent Michael Frolik on Sunday.
The club made the decision before the 5pm et deadline on Sunday and decided to go to a mediator.
In his first year with the Jets last season, Frolik scored 15 goals and added 27 assists for 42 points in 81 games.
According to capgeek.com, Frolik made $1.9 million last season with a cap hit of $2.3 million.
