It's starting this summer and that 4 years is only for 18 year olds (or players in their actual draft year). If it's an overager, the rights expire in 2 or 3 years depending on the age of the player. This agreement does not include Russia, so basically rights for Russian prospects do not expire at the moment.

I'm guessing Håkan will get more picks thanks to this change.
