No, not yet. But I think he will because he turn 20 in September.

Right, he must sign by June 1, 2009.

Not really, a RFA is a player who was under contract and that the contract expired. If you want a status title, I would say an unsigned draft choice/pick.

So, assuming that Weber doesn't make the roster this fall, will he go back to Kitchener or can we send him to Hamilton? I'm not sure what the cutoff date is as far as when a guy has to have turned 20 (Weber's b-day is Sept. 23 '88).

Habs will have both options. Any 1988 born player can play in the AHL next season even if he is not 20 years old at the start of the season.

Though, Kitchener might not want to give an euro and overager spot to the same player.

ROFL - OK, I was talking about Shea Weber.

Sorry, brain cramp.

Shea is an RFA though!

Weber is very unlikely to be back in Kitchner, he should be in Hamilton. The cutoff is decemeber 31st, so as long as a CHL player turns 20 before Jan 1st, he can play in the AHL.

He hasn't been signed yet, they can take their time and sign him at any point this summer.

Gainey & Co have to deal within the 50 man limit for the roster so expect this signing after the draft weekend cause Dandy and Begin might be elsewhere...plus after July 11st no more Ryder and Smoke and maybe Brisebois but somehow I think they will keep him
