    Swiss Nationalleague to sign transfer agreement with the NHL...so Suter wouldn't need that clause and NHL teams will be able to negotiate a contract with any player.

    Grigorenko signed by Columbus for 1.2M.
    Interestingly, one Russian insider I follow mentioned that 2 other teams were interested. One being from Eastern conference that has "excellent chances of getting 1st overall pick" :huh:
    He chose Columbus because the other 2 teams put it on the back burner because of COVID.

    Was wird aus dem NHL-Traum von SCB-Star Scherwey? - Blick
    Looks like Tristan Scherwey still intends to take a shot at the NHL. He has an exit clause this summer and took part in the Sens training camp last camp but was cut early because of his contract restrictions. Back then there was a report that DJ Smith liked him and wanted to keep him around. In this article Scherwey states he hasn't heard from the Senators since and that his agent couldn't tell him anything specific. I don't know what restrictions are on NHL teams but they might be limited about what they can talk with when speaking with agents of players under contract from specific leagues. So it is unclear whether the Sens aren't interested in taking another look at Scherwey or whether they intend to speak with his agent at a later date.

    I posted it already:laugh:

    Also, as I mentioned, players like Suter or Scherwey won't need their out clause because the Nationalleague agreed with Bill Daly on a transfer agreement. It will be in place for the 20/21 season already even though the transfer agreement with the other European leagues is going to get revised after the upcoming season.

    The only unclear thing is if NHL teams still would have to compensate Swiss teams if they sign players with NHL out clauses in their contracts, such as Suter or Scherwey. That will have to be determined.

    La NHL dans le viseur de Tristan Scherwey

    Had to translate this article a bit but it sounds like Tristan Scherwey really wanted to stay in Ottawa last year after training camp but of course had to return to Switzerland due to no NHL-out clause in his contract for the season. It was also reported not long ago that Ottawa had not contacted his agent since last September but this article reads as if recently his agent has gotten the interest of multiple NA teams and that Ottawa is one of them. I’m sure Ottawa would be his top choice. An issue though is that his NHL-out clause is for the 20-21 season and that window might expire before the 19-20 season playoffs even finish. He does add though he think he will find an arrangement with his club to make something work if he does get offered an NHL contract.

    I like what I saw from him in training camp last season so it would be nice to see him get another shot. I think he could be a good depth option and he likely will be inexpensive. He also fits into the style of the team and would add a bit more nastiness to the lineup.
