The one-day contracts are tryouts that are signed by amateurs to serve as a backup in an emergency situation, which happened to the Ducks this season. They signed a goalie with RHI experience to serve as backup for that game.

Yep I knew about those emergency backup deals but never knew if you needed em for practice or not. It'd be an interesting thing to know if I could just walk off the street and practice for the Kings or if I'd need to sign a deal just to practice.
