Someone mentioned something about having Schroeder signing a PTO then ELC? What does his him signing an ELC and no PTO do? What are the requirements for him to use up a year of his ELC?
If a player is 18 or 19 and plays ten NHL games (regular season and play-offs) then he burns a year off his ELC. It does not apply to AHL games.

If he is 20 years of age it relates to years of "professional experience" which includes the NHL and AHL.
Quote:
For the purposes of this Section 10.2(a) (my note Group 2 RFA status), a Player aged 18 or 19 earns a year of professional experience by playing ten (10) or more NHL Games in a given NHL Season, and a Player aged 20 or older (or who turns 20 between September 16 and December 31 of the year in which he signs his first SPC) earns a year of professional experience by playing ten (10) or more Professional Games under an SPC in a given League Year.
Then you have to consider salary arbitration eligibility as well which uses the same formula.
Code:
SPC Signing Age.....Minimum Level of Professional Experience Required to be Eligible for Salary Arbitration 
18-20.............................4 years professional experience 
21.................................3 years professional experience 
22-23............................2 years professional experience 
24 and older...................1 year professional experience
As Schroeder's birthdate is 29 Sept 1990 (he is currently 19) then it appears that since he will turn 20 between September 16 and December 31 of the year in which he signed his first SPC, if he plays 10 or more games with the Moose (or the Canucks) he will burn a year off his ELC and year off his arbitration ineligibility.
