I don't believe that would count as a contract under the 50 limit and it would give a prospect a chance to grow and develop where he will be the most comfortable while giving the Bruins another potential asset.

If he never comes back over then who cares but it could be worth a shot for a player that has got some strong talent.
If signed and loaned to a Euro team, he would count against the 50 SPC limit.

The only exception is for 18 or 19 yo players, with less than 11 NHL games played, who are returned to Juniors.

(b) Unsigned Draft Choices.

I just remembered the team also has Niko Hoivinen, who is signed but is playing at least this coming season in the Sm-Liga before coming to North America and he counts against the limit as well.

There is no age limit. All players loaned to a Euro club count against the 50 SPC limit.

The 18 & 19 yo exception only applies to players returned to Juniors.
