2022 Offseason Player Tracker

August 15, 2022

Welcome to the Hershey Bears Player Tracker for the 2022 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 2021-22 team are already under contract and could return to the Washington Capitals organization next year. Our Player Tracker has you covered!

Below is a list of players who skated with Hershey in 2021-22, and ended the season in the organization, and their current contract status. This list will be updated as players re-sign and sign elsewhere.
 
Not sure what all this means? CapFriendly has a great Q&A page for your reference.
