I was curious about that as well. Writer might be making an incorrect assumption that Tolchinsky can only sign with teams with whom he attended camp. Albeit, that's usually how this happens. Usually we'll hear of a few undrafted guys that turn some heads at summer camps and earn contract offers. In particular, the Sharks signed Michael Sgarbossa a couple years back and he ended up winning the OHL scoring title in 2012. The Kings signed Martin Jones who went undrafted and later represented Canada at the WJC.

Tolchinsky would be required to sign an ELC. He probably wouldn't be sniffing at an NHL roster spot for a couple seasons, so he'd be independent to anything involving Stepan/Zuccarello.
