from TSN,

There are still some notable names on the board as the NHL's free agent signing period goes into its sixth day.

With 57 names taken off the Top 100 compiled by TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli, Mike Hoffman is now the top free agent available.

Seravalli reported on Insider Trading on Tuesday that the teams most interested in Hoffman at this point are the Boston Bruins, the Columbus Blue Jackets and Nashville Predators. He added that other teams like the Montreal Canadiens and Vancouver Canucks could be in the mix if they’re able to move pieces.

Hoffman, 30, had 29 goals and 59 points in 69 games last season with the Florida Panthers and carried a $5.19 million cap hit.

The top defenceman on the list is Sami Vatanen, who sits at No. 8, one spot ahead of veteran Zdeno Chara.
