hey guys. how do ELC contracts work. iv heard a player has to play a number of games before his first year is gone from contract. how many games is that
is that same for 2nd and 3rd year.
example kadri how many years have been technically gone from his ELC contract. thanks
im so confused about this.
A prospect is allowed to play 9 NHL games, if they play 10 a year is burn on there contract.
D'Amigo (under 20) on other hand came from the NCAA played 40+ AHL games then was sent to the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. A year on his deal was not burned either
In any North American league whether it will be the NCAA, OHL, WHL, QMJHL a player can play a maximum of 4 years in that league. If for example a player signs an ELC contract with 3 years into their junior career the NHL team has an option of keeping them in the NHL or sending them back as an over-ager. Kadri for example almost made the Leafs in 09-10, say he played 15 games Toronto could potentially send him back to the OHL but it would burn a year on his contract.
Hopefully this isn't too confusing theres a ton of loop-holes for european players too
