2024 Offseason Player Tracker

July 1, 2024

Welcome to the Hershey Bears Player Tracker for the 2024 offseason! This page will be updated throughout the summer as players sign contracts for the upcoming season.

Many of your favorite players from Hershey's 2023-24 Calder Cup Championship team are already under contract and will return within the Washington Capitals/Bears pipeline for next year. Our Player Tracker has you covered!

Below is a list of players who skated the majority of the season with Hershey in 2023-24, ended the season in the organization, and their current contract status. This list will be updated as players re-sign and sign elsewhere.
