Obvious nickname is Han.
The Flames should be all over this. They really need to start reloading for the future.
Now moot, regardless he's signed with the Preds
OHL LW playing in AHL this season (so far)
When will Seattle sign there first player.
from last week
Deal the Kraken? Francis can't make official trades -- yet
"General manager Ron Francis can't finalize any transactions until ownership makes its final expansion payment to the league,"
HOWEVER current NHL contracts do not expire for a while -
typically June 30 IIRC, but i believe that had been extended to late July, and is due to extend again, given further adjustments to NHL schedule
Once that payment is made, i believe he could begin to sign players
- not currently on NHL contracts, and
- not on NHL Reserve Lists, and
- who are no longer Entry-Draft-Eligible,
assuming no conflict with player's most recent team
so for example, once Seattle is square with the NHL,
he could sign a 'no longer draft eligible' undrafted NCAA player, or undrafted Major Junior player, at will,
IF i am overlooking any considerations, I am confident youse guys will set me straight ASAP
ADDED - FYI 1st signee by Vegas was a Junior player, drafted by Wild, but unsigned within 2 years, so UFA
Golden Knights sign Reid Duke as first player
Golden Knights sign Reid Duke as first player March 6, 2017
"Duke (6-foot, 192 pounds) was a sixth-round pick (No. 169) of the Minnesota Wild in the 2014 NHL Draft but never signed with them"
Is there a problem with the Seattle financial situation? I think Vegas paid up right at or near March 1st.
