Tochkin contract question

How did he get signed if he's still eligible for the next couple drafts?

A North American player who is not drafted by the age of 20 is an unrestricted free agent.

There's a small period after the draft where an undrafted player is allowed to sign a contract with a NHL team. After that period, they must re-enter the draft if they don't have a contract.

I think.

I'm probably wrong.

That does sound wrong.

Indeed.
A player has until October 1st to sign as a UFA after not being selected in the draft before having to go back in.

You are correct.

If a draft eligible player has been passed over he can be signed to a pro contract. It does not happen too often.

Last year Kyle Wellwood's brother, Eric was undrafted and went to the Leafs camp. He did quite well but was not offered a contract. The same with Hodgson's teammate Thomas Stajan (Matt's cousin) in Brampton.

Eric returned to Windsor and was drafted this year by Philadelphia Flyers round 6 #172 overall.

Stajan was not drafted out of junior and now can be signed as a free agent as he is finished with junior.

Tochkin has good hands but his skating will be his downfall

Something similar was said about Geoff Sanderson when he was drafted...I guess we all saw how that turned out...
