The Oklahoma City Oilers, I mean Barons just got even better. Hall wasn't assigned to the AHL team by the Oilers but instead signed an AHL contract with the team. Didn't know players and teams could do this? Does this mean established Canuck roster players not assigned to the Wolves can instead choose to sign with them?

Interesting. I thought that this would violate the waiver rule.

I believe it's because the Oilers sent down Eberle/Schultz/RNH before the expiry of the CBA. With the expiry, teams cannot communicate with players, so Hall couldn't be sent down. He signed with the team all his friends are on.

As per the Wolves, yes they can sign NHLers, if NHLers are willing to play there.

Edit: after further digging... I am partially incorrect, as was the majority of reports until today.. as they all stated that he was going to be 'assigned'

No.

Players need to be on a 2 way contract to have been assigned to the AHL during the lock-out OR been on LAST YEARS clear-day roster to be allowed to sign with a AHL team.

Examples for the Canucks are Ebbett (2 way), Gordon (clear-day), Joslin (2-way), Pinnizotto (clear-day).

Hate to do this Ossi.

But you are in-correct.

Hall was assigned to Oklahoma. He wasn't assigned there earlier, as he was 'unfit to play' due to the injury he suffered last season.

Hall has now been medically cleared to play, and was assigned to OKC by the Oilers.


so the article on the AHL webpage is incorrect then? It calls it a signing and not assigning.

Must be the logistical process that allows him to be assigned there later in the season due to his injury,as he wouldn't have been allowed to sign with any other team.

Likely just means that OKC is footing his salary, and not the Oilers.

After looking it further - Hall 'signed' a AHL contract.

Only allowed to sign with OKC and had to be with Edmontons approval.

This was all done because he wasn't sent down before the lock-out began.

So in theory - he was assigned but I am wrong in a way, as he did sign a contract unlike RNH, Eberle etc.

Hall wasn't able to be assigned to the Barons because he was injured at the deadline, September 15th or whatever the day was.

The AHL later released a statement saying that players can sign AHL contracts if they were still on two-way deals at the NHL level.

Players under NHL contract can only sign in the AHL if they are on a two-way deal in their NHL contract.
