Mike Vanderhoek Posted July 28, 2013 Share Posted July 28, 2013 I am wondering if a player from the KHL say for example, Nikolai Zherdev would be able to sign on with an NHL club beofre the NHL trade deadline. This would be assuming Zherdev's team misses the Playoffs in the KHL, though I have no idea when the NHL trade deadline is this season. Also I am aware a player is under contract to a KHL team up to May 1st of the final year of a contract, though players in the past if team's have been eliminated or missed the Playoffs have had a mutual termination of a contract think Dmity Orlov. So it is possible for in Zherdev's case to miss the Playoffs and be available to an NHL team before the deadline. Is there any rule against UFA's signing with an NHL team that late ? is it just players whom are NHL team property think last year Boston's Carl Soderberg, maybe this year with Kuznestov in Washington. Any insight would be great, thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
