    Is he eligible for Grand Rapids? The little blurb on CBS I saw on the signing said his first step would be there, but I assumed because he’s only 18, he’d be shipped back to Halifax.

    I've really lost track of rules/policies. What does this signing imply exactly? I'm fairly sure they didn't have to sign him and so to me this implies they either really like him and or they plan to move him to GR sooner than later.

    Looked solid in prospects games. Nothing that stood out but seems to be well-rounded.

    Its too bad he got hurt, he would've got playing time in the preseason before being sent down unlike most of the junior prospects. He was clearly the best dman behind Cholowski in the prospects tourney. I think hes going to have a sneaky good season and likely make the WJC team.

    I hope he can have a Saad type post draft season. Went way lower than he was projected to start his draft year but finds his groove again and becomes a free top 15 pick

    A lot of the time early signings like this are a combination of a reward for good performance and trying to sign a player they think is going to improve over the season (and ask for more next year). That said, this doesn't change when he'll be in GR. He was always going to GR right when able.

    Yeah, it's a small reward. He'll get the ELC signing bonus for 1st year, even though his ELC contract would slide, when he is returning to Halifax. He'll 92 500 dollars instantly as a signing bonus.

    Do WHL, OHL and QMJHL Players Get Paid? -

    That signing bonus is huge add for the sums the players normally earn in Canadian junior hockey leagues.

    Jared McIsaac - CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps

    ***

    A basic example for a player, like McIsaac who signs ELC as 18-year old, but won't play in NHL for first 2 years. Salary will be paid like this:

    1st year (ELC slide) 18-year-old, signing bonus paid, 92.5k
    2nd year (ELC slide) 19-year-old, signing bonus paid, 92.5k
    3rd year (in AHL) 20-year old, signing bonus paid, 92.5k + minors salary 70k = Total 162.5k
    4th year (50%AHL, 50%NHL) 21-year old, no bonuses, minors salary 50% of 70k + 50% of 832.5k = Total 451.25k
    5th year (NHL) 22-year-old, no bonuses, 832.5k

    So signing bonuses are always paid (entry-level slide or not) on 1-2-3 year after the signing, but normal salaries after the slide-years.

    Not for 2 years...

    One season at Halifax is ok, but at next season they should try to find some place for pro debut, one way or another...

    I think playing in Europe is the only loophole on this case.

    Any report to the extent of his injury and when he might play for Halifax this year?
