This Year's Graduated College Players

Doesn't a NHL team have to offer a player a contract with a certain number of days following the end of his college career (amateur eligibility) and if an offer is not made, doesn't this player become a free agent?

The Hockey News used to publish a list of those college players given their outright release but that was many years ago.

The list below is a list of drafted college players who have graduated and may not have yet signed an NHL contract although some have signed ATOs with the farm club.

NJ Magowan, Ken LW Albany (AHL)/ED00

Well yes it's a number of days after they finish school, but it's actually 365 days, not a couple. Teams have 1 year to sign a player out of college or they become FA's.

Also missing off the list is Scott Selig, Northeastern.

There are about 10-20 kids on this list that SHOULD be signed but with the impending labor issues, teams are very leary of making any signings.

And yes, teams have until July 1 the year after the player graduates to sign him.

Here is a list of players I think will end up with NHL deals:
PIT Eaves, Ben C Boston College (HE)/ED01
ATL Stuart, Colin C Colorado College (WCHA)/ED01
CHI Berkhoel, Adam G Denver (WCHA)/ED00
NYI Caldwell, Ryan D Denver (WCHA)/ED00
LA James, Connor RW Denver (WCHA)/ED02
DAL Rosa, Marco C Merrimack (HE)/ED01
CBJ Kolarik, Tyler C Harvard (ECAC)/ED00
TB Packard, Dennis LW Harvard (ECAC)/ED01
STL Riddle, Troy C Minnesota (WCHA)/ED00
LA Gabinet, Mike D Nebraska-Omaha (CCHA)/ED01
CHI Ayers, Michael G New Hampshire (HE)/ED00
OTT Komadoski, Neil D Notre Dame (CCHA)/Binghamton (AHL)/ED01
FLA Globke Rob, RW Notre Dame (CCHA)/ED02
LA Steckel David, C Ohio State (CCHA)/ED01
LA Marsters, Nathan G Rensselaer (ECAC)/ED00
NAS Hendricks, Matt LW St. Cloud State (WCHA)/
Milwaukee (AHL)/ED00

Then there are some borderline players.

The Senators signed Komadoski to a multi-year contract at the start of April.
