If he doesn't make the NHL squad, and plays the entire season in the AHL, that still counts as a year on his contract, correct?

No. His contract can slide for up to 2 years as long as he plays no more than 9 NHL games.

Oh wow, I figured it would be a contract where he'd make such a salary for NHL games, and a reduced salary for AHL games. This is great. If they use him in spot duty, 9 or less, he'll get AHL experience and it won't use up a year o his contract with us.

Yeah, he'll still be paid playing in the AHL. Just AHL games basically don't count against his contract. Right now. We'll see what the new CBA says about it

I'm gonna assume that was sarcastic, but Regier indicated that they were working on a deal with Grigorenko. My hunch is they're disagreeing over bonuses--Grigorenko probably wants the kind of bonuses a top 5 pick gets (since he was ranked there for most of the season), Regier probably wants much smaller bonuses in the deal.

But Girgensons, while not as talented as Grigorenko, is physically ready for the professional game. He'll likely get a chance to compete for a spot then get sent down to Rochester.

His contract will slide even if he plays the entire season in the AHL.
