It would be nice if it was easier for the guys on NHL contracts to get back into the NHL. seems, as for most veterinarians signing an AHL contract is a point without return in their career, much more than simmilar contracts are in other sports. The NHL will also follow the same player transfer contract with the IIHF leagues, including Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, Denmark, Norway and Germany. The new contract provides for a one-year extension of the current contract with CHL. Players must be 20 years old or have played four seasons of junior hockey before they can join an NHL minor league team. The current contract was already signed in November 2013 and was due to expire on 30 June 2020. Another example of a player who probably suffered as a result of the current contract is Barrett Hayton of the Arizona Coyotes. He is currently on the NHL team, but has only played in 20 games. Hayton has only recently been able to stay in the lineup. Part of it is due to an injury he suffered in the world juniors, but from the start of the season to the end of November, Hayton has only appeared in 14 of 27 games. With prospects in the Continental Hockey League, the schedule is a little more vague. The NHL and the Russian Ice Hockey Federation do not have a transfer agreement, but there is an agreement not to interfere with each other`s valid contracts. As a result, there is a kind of game waiting for interested people to either guarantee their contractual authorization prematurely (which can be difficult and expensive, especially for the best young players) of their KHL team or play the duration of their KHL contract and then be free to sign with their NHL rights holder.
Another element of this confusing equation is the NCAA, the U.S. university organization (Canadian universities are not covered by this umbrella). College players can turn professional whenever they want; As soon as they sign a trial contract or play a single game for payment, they are not allowed to play in the NCAA immediately. The NHL/CHL agreement is terrible, and they should get rid of it. For European League players, the signing window depends on both age and country, depending on whether the country`s ruling hockey association has a transfer contract with the National Hockey League. There is an agreement between the NHL and the CHL (Canadian Hockey League, the cross-sectional organization under which the OHL, WHL and QMJHL are located), which exists primarily to protect the CHL. The rule is that the NHL has entered into a working agreement with the CHL for many years. It allows CHL players to play for the teams they design.
