he's not signed, but he was drafted out of Europe not out of the CHL (although he ended up going there after the fact)
as such I dont' believe he is subject to the same rules regarding draft reentry (which may change with the new CBA anyways)
edit: actually strike that I think I was given bad information. FDW is correct below I think
We should sign him to once the season begins, our defesive group is gonna be beasts, and teams are gonna be in tought when they play us, our relentless checking and huge defence man now, the pounding is gonna kill our team and others you gotta love it.
We forcheck so well, hopefully Sutter takes a more offensive approach, and uses Phanuef and Leopold to pinch, which will make us even that more dangerous.
