As far as I know, the only rule for signing CHL or NCAA players as Free Agents is that they had to be available and passed up in the Entry Draft once. Josh Gorges is an example this year. Signed by the Sharks as a 18 year old after being passed up in the draft. I don't know the restrictions on Euros (Of course there may be an age consideration but for the most part they have to be drafted.) I have a couple questions. 1. Are there any other guidelines in regards to signing Undrafted North Americans? 2. Because Josh Gorges was signed as a Free Agent and not drafted would he qualify to play in the AHL?
