The Philadelphia Flyers made qualifying offers to four players Monday, the last day NHL clubs could issue offers to restricted free agents.
By issuing qualifying offers, teams are given the right of the first refusal or draft-choice compensation should the player sign an offer sheet with another NHL club. Players without an offer will become unrestricted free agents if not signed by noon EDT on Tuesday, the start of free agency.
Akeson, 23, appeared in all seven games for the Flyers-New York Rangers series in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, posting two goals and three points.
Gustafsson, 25, appeared in 31 regular-season games for the Flyers last season, recording 10 points and adding one goal in two Stanley Cup playoff games.
Manning, 23, led the AHL Adirondack defense in scoring with 23 assists and 31 points in 73 games while also tying for the team lead with 231 penalty minutes.
