There is no more time to sign European players except those taken in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. The European signing deadline was June 15. There is an initial deadline of July 15 for signing transfer prospects taken in the 2006 Draft, and then a $100,000 additional transfer fee for players taken between July 16 and August 15. Because there are also additional fees for transfers playing fewer than 30 NHL games in the first year of their transfer, ($50,000 for a first rounder, $100,000 for a second rounder, and $150,000 for a third rounder on up), few, if any, Euros who are taken in the 2006 Draft will be brought over for the 2006-07 season.
Also, all Euros drafted in the 2002 Draft or prior had to be signed by June 15 or they became unrestricted free agents.
[Edited so that it says June 15, not 1, sorry for confusion]
