UDFA Signing Freeze


I've heard through the grapevine that there have been a lot of offers lately for UDFA's.

Just a reminder that there is a signing freeze in effect for such players until the offseason, as of the HFNHL trade deadline.

With a slew of new GM's, I suppose this was something that should have been posted following the deadline. It's been one of those rules we've had for a while that I suppose we assume most people know about. It's to prevent the signing of College and European free agents, who get NHL deals at the conclusion of their seasons.

Also, just something else to think about. As of next season, there will be a signing restriction placed on CHL overagers during the HFNHL regular season. Previously (including this season) we have allowed this. After some discussion, we've decided to include them in the same vein as College free agents and make them only available during the HFNHL offseason.
