    Are '88 DOB who were not drafted in the '06 and '07 draft still eligible for the '08 draft? So in other words, are the cut-offs '88 thru 9/--/90 for the '08 draft?

    From the CBA:

    Eligibility for Claim

    Article 8.4. "(a) All Players age 18 or older are eligible for claim in the Entry Draft, except:
    (i) a Player on the Reserve List of a Club, other than as a try-out;
    (ii) a Player who has been claimed in two prior Entry Drafts;
    (iii) a Player who previously played in the League and became a Free Agent pursuant to this Agreement;
    (iv) a Player age 21 or older who: (A) has not been selected in a previous Entry Draft and (B) played hockey for at least one season in North America when he was age 18, 19, or 20 and shall be eligible to enter the League as an Unrestricted Free Agent pursuant to Article 10.1(d); and
    (v) a Player age 22 or older who has not been selected in a previous Entry Draft and shall be eligible to enter the League as an Unrestricted Free Agent pursuant to Article 10.1(d)."


    So yes a '88 can be selected but only if they do not fall under the above guidelines.
