I think so.
UFAs indeed. They're all too old to re-enter the draft.
EDIT : The only exceptions might be the 3 Euro goalies (Durny, Brattstrom and Kloucek) who were drafted in 2018 at 20-21 years old.
Frederik Andersen was in the same situation in 2012 after failing to come to terms with Carolina who had drafted him as a 20-year old in 2010. He got the opportunity to reenter the draft in 2012 where he was picked by Anaheim.
Ah! You're the man, Booba! I'll start editing these in this weekend!

And that is how you can keep going and redeveloping after trading away most of your good draft picks.

Pittsburgh Penguins land college free agent Drew O'Connor - TSN.ca
According to TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli, the Pittsburgh Penguins have landed undrafted college free agent forward Drew O'Connor.
O'Connor, 21, has been a force for Dartmouth this season, scoring 21 goals and adding 12 assists in 31 games. He recorded 26 points in 34 games last season.
From Frank Seravalli's most recent Friday Five:
"The ECAC’s Co-Player of the Year has sprouted into a can’t-miss find. O’Connor was just 5-foot-8 at age 18, a big reason he wasn’t on NHL radars in his draft year, but has grown to 6-foot-3 while playing for the appropriately named for the Big Green. NHL teams have flocked to watch O’Connor, who they see as a legitimate NHL power forward prospect with a nose for the net. His 38 goals (in 68 games) are the third most in the country over the last two seasons – with a 16 per cent shooting percentage this season – but his overall game has grown as much as his body. There is definitely no shortage of NHL interest in O’Connor, but there is no guarantee the sophomore will decide to leave school early."

He could be another Tanner Glass.
Which undrafted free agents should the Sabres look at?
Big fan of Khodorenko. Can never guarantee an NHL player, but pretty confident he will at the very least be a strong AHL depth addition for whomever gets him
How the heck do you grow 7 inches at age 18... I would have tried a lot harder had I know it was possible!
Michigan State getting some players to the pros
Rangers agree to terms with Patrick Khodorenko
Is that a good thing
I grew 5 inches my freshman year of college.
I'm sure there is likely of exaggeration although I believe Pancake Penner grew a ton during that time too.
