No qualifying offers were extended to Michael Latta, Ryan Stanton and Caleb Herbert. The players will become Unrestricted Free Agents on July 1. 

The news broke just before the 5:00 PM deadline that the Capitals would not be extending qualifying offers to Restricted Free Agents (RFA’s) Michael Latta, Caleb Herbert and Ryan Stanton.
