Again. His contract with IFK means nothing if someone offers Petrell NHL contract. Finnish Hockey Federation and NHL have done player transfer agreement.

The thing is though that many Finns that could be excellent bottom 6 players in NHL rather go to KHL because they'll get more responsibility and better salary than they would get in NHL. That is among the biggest reasons why the number of new finnish players in NHL has been decreasing last few years.

Most likely Petrell has some kind of NHL-clause in his current contract so if he gets a good offer from an NHL organisation, his current contract with HIFK won't hold him back.

The NHL-clause is automatically in every SM-liiga contract.
