Amateur Contract Tryout Question

If a player is signed to an Amateur Contract Tryout and is dressed for a game, do they get paid? I was wondering if Torrie Jung would have gotten anything other than a free jersey and once in lifetime opportunity.

I'm going to assume (I don't know for sure) that there isn't any monetary value, since it's only a tryout.

There HAS to be some sort of representation on the salary cap. Otherwise i would assume Detroit would have pulled an 'emergency tryout' by now this year. I'm going to guess league minimum divided by 82? But i would be happy to have my math corrected.

$6402.44

Anyone?

Im sure he would get something, under the table, if nothing else.

Its a whole mess of paperwork that has to be filled on short notice on the amateur end...just to get a guy a temporary release so he can be on an NHL roster.

another question... isn't Jung a Tampa Draft pick? How can he be wearing an Oilers' uniform?

Tampa Bay didn't sign him, he's now an NHL free agent.

It's actually a one page contract in the CBA where teams have to fax to league office.

But he is a carded amateur player so he has to obtain a release from his team & then re-sign an allotment card before he is re-eligible to play as a Jr.

I think they have it set up that allows for it to all be done online he does have to be temporarily released in order to be on the Oilers roster even for one day.
