IMO if North Dakota has an early exit from the playoffs I would sign him to a current deal, have him play the end of the season in Hamilton then call him up for whatever is left of the NHL year. He could end up being useful like Kreider was for the Rangers last year.
Not a big deal imo. Also even if ND has an early exit from the playoffs, they will still likely be Frozen Four bound since they are high up in the pairwise rankings. Even if not they wouldn't know it until the end of the month when the teams are announced.

The loop hole is for players that spend a year outside the NCAA as NHL draft picks, so that after 3 years in the NCAA, they can opt out and become UFA's.

Mac Bennett, Mark MacMillan and Colin Sullivan can all opt out after their 3rd year in the NCAA. So Bennett this summer, MacMillan the next and Sullivan the following.

Just a bit of a party culture with the team and no leniency from the police it seems.
The funny thing is Frattin was suspended and missed the entire semester (half the season), it didn't seem to hurt him.
