If you draft an 18 or 19 year old Euro player, you have 4 years to sign them. You still only have 2 on CHLers.
How is a 22 year old NCAA player
the same as a CHLer or guy from Europe?
I am going to take a wild guess here, but if NCAA rules that exist for football regarding amateur status apply for hockey too (most likely they do), then a student can't sign a contract. If a NCAA draftee continues his education to completion (4 years is the usual length) without opting out, then it might be required that the time period be given.
