Sobotka's Arbitration Date Set

The NHL announced yesterday that the St. Louis Blues and centerman Vladimir Sobotka are set for their arbitration meeting on July 21st. Sobotka initially declined his arbitration rights, however the Blues notified him over the weekend that they would be using their club-elected arbitration option. With a meeting on the horizon, Sobotka is ineligible to receive an offer sheet from any other team.
