Pck will be a UFA this summer not because of a clause in his contract, but because it says so in the CBA:


Group VI: (i) Means any Player who is age 25 or older who has completed three (3) or more
professional seasons, whose SPC has expired and: (i) in the case of a Player other than a
goaltender, has played less than 80 NHL Games, or (ii) in the case of a goaltender, has
played less than 28 NHL Games (for the purpose of this definition, a goaltender must have
played a minimum of thirty (30) minutes in an NHL Game to register a game played). For the
purposes of the foregoing, the term professional season shall: (A) for a Player aged 18 or
19, mean any season in which such Player plays in eleven (11) or more Professional Games
(including NHL Regular Season and Playoff Games, minor league regular season and playoff
games, and games played in any European professional league, while under an SPC), and (B)
for a Player aged 20 or older, mean any season in which such Player plays in one or more
Professional Games (including NHL Regular Season and Playoff Games, minor league regular
season and playoff games, and games played in any European professional league, while under
an SPC).
(ii) Any Group 6 Player shall, at the expiration of his SPC, become an Unrestricted Free
Agent and shall be completely free to negotiate and sign an SPC with any Club, and any Club
shall be completely free to negotiate and sign an SPC with such Player, without penalty or
restriction, or being subject to any Right of First Refusal, Draft Choice Compensation or
any other compensation or equalization obligation of any kind.
