I'm pretty sure it's as of June 30th of the year in which the contract starts. So Pronger signed at age 34, but what really matters is how old is he on June 30th (so like 2 months). At that time he will be 35. If Turco signs a deal now, all that matters is that on June 30th he is still 34 (assuming it's true his birthday is in August).

So no, the 35+ rule will not apply to Turco assuming he does not turn 35 until August.
