Compensatory Draft Selection for Cherepanov?

Can anyone with familiarity of the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement confirm whether the NY Rangers will be entitled to a Compensatory Draft Selection under Article 8.3(b) of the CBA, despite the lack of a transfer agreement? The section states:

"In the event a Club loses its draft rights to an Unsigned Draft Choice drafted in the first round of the Entry Draft (except as a result of failing to tender a required Bona Fide Offer (as defined below)), who is again eligible for the Entry Draft or becomes an Unrestricted Free Agent, a Compensatory Draft Selection shall automatically be granted to that Club, which Compensatory Draft Selection shall be the same numerical choice in the second round in the Entry Draft immediately following the date the Club loses such rights."

With Alexei Cherepanov's untimely and tragic demise, I hope that nobody takes offense to this question. As a human being, I feel terrible that he passed away before living a complete and full life. As a Rangers fan, I feel terrible that they lost a first round pick and an elite talent. Of course this is different, but this would mark the third time in recent memory (Dan Blackburn and Stefan Cherneski) that a first round draft pick's career ended prematurely.

I'm curious to find out if the Rangers would be entitled to a compensatory pick, despite the lack of a transfer agreement AND the inability to tender a bona fide offer, due to his death. I also have no clue as to when he would've become a UFA if he remained unsigned. If anyone can shed some light on this, it would be greatly appreciated.

May you find peace in the after-life Alexei...

I believe that means we will receive #47 overall selection of the draft (the 17th pick of the second round). The problem is the first part of the section which requires a Bona Fide (good faith) offer made to the player by the club.

Technically and unfortunately, it is no longer possible for the Rangers to tender an offer here, so they are likely entitled to the compensation pick.

Like a draft pick will make up for the loss of Alexei Cherepanov. It's selfish and disrespectful to ask for one, it's like you're saying all the kid was good for is his hockey skills.

Maybe come close to the draft date, or if anything is ever officially announced..but right now, this question can wait for a much later date.
