I think that when the player's not eligible anymore then he can be signed any time but if he's still eligible, the player can only sign with the team who will have invited him to the training camp and I think he must sign before the start of the junior or NHL season,

I know only three players who did that:
Olivier Michaud with Montreal in September 18, 2001
Josh Gorges with San Jose in September 20, 2002
Olivier Latendresse with Phoenix in September 15, 2004

all of them been 18 years old and in their 1st year draft eligible
