Scheduled to cost million a year through the 2018-19 campaign under his current contract, the center will likely clear waivers, but shouldn't have too much trouble finding a landing spot once the dust settles.
Ten years ago, though — almost to the day — Cammalleri and the Los Angeles Kings sat on opposite sides in a five-hour arbitration hearing.
He was a second round selection, 49th overall, of the Kings at the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
Cammalleri made his NHL debut with the Kings in 2002 and scored the first regular season goal ever scored in a game played in Europe in 2007.
After the expiry of his contract in 2014, Cammalleri signed a five-year deal with the New Jersey Devils, but he was bought out just three years into the deal.
In the subsequent free agency period, he signed a one-year deal to return to the Kings, opting for a second tenure with a team for the second time in his career.
