All contracts prior to the signing of the newest CBA are grandfathered in. The term length will not change.
*However, the actual CBA has not been completed/viewed yet. During negotiations, the NHL wanted back-diving contracts to count against the signing team's cap if the player retired, even if traded. Doubt such a clause makes the final document, but we can't rule anything out until we hear confirmation. *
