He didn't have a great run with Buffalo and Colorado the last time he was in the NHL.

 

However, he seems to have found his game in the KHL and Columbus has a knack for finding diamonds in the rough recently. Could be a really good reclamation project if this works out for CBJ.

Lavoie cites article 50.8 (d):

 

(d) No Club or Player may enter into an SPC that does not cover at least the then- current League Year. The foregoing does not apply to an SPC entered into pursuant to Section 50.5(f) above, or to Unsigned Draft Choices or Draft Related Unrestricted Free Agents, who shall be permitted to sign an SPC during the period from March 1 through June 1 immediately preceding the League Year in which such SPC is to take effect.

As someone mentioned, I believe on Twitter. How is this any different than the Leafs signing of Alexander Barabanov?

Barabanov signed an ELC - those are allowed, similar to the Canucks signing Michaelis as an undrafted prospect.  It's regular contracts that can't be signed until 1 July unless it's an extension to an existing contract.
