DeKeyser will sign a 2 year ELC. Will be 23 by September 15. His college career will be over before the NHL season ends. Newport will probably demand DeKeyser play a game this season/put on active roster to use up 1 year of the ELC if that's allowed in the new CBA. The NHL had proposed preventing that from happening. No word if the PA agreed but probably not. The trading deadline is April 3. If DeKeyser is on the Rangers reserve list by the 3rd,they could use him in the playoffs. That's how the Rangers were able to use Kreider in the playoffs. The NHL trading deadline is usually late February so a college free agent could not have been eligible for the playoffs unless the NHL/PA agreed to a transition rule to prevent that with the deadline late this season.
