    Until he turns 27, which would be next year, after his KHL contract is up.
    So next year he can sign as a UFA, but point still stands for this year.

    Incorrect, the KHL has no transfer-agreement with the NHL and a player's rights belong to the team that drafted him in perpetuity if he was drafted out of a system with no transfer-agreemenyt and never signs an NHL contract. He will, however, not be bound be ELC stipulations after age 27 but he can only sign with Boston.

    That is for drafted players.
    Khokhalchev is post-draft; he has signed and played through a SPC, which left him as a RFA (as opposed to a "Draft-related free agent")
    Because KHL has no transfer agreement is why he was able to sign there (a league like SHL or Liiga would require a loan agreement).

    At his 27th birthday, he'd trigger Group 3 Free Agency - a player 27 or older who's most recent contract has been fulfilled.

    You are correct sir, a thousand apologies. I'm not sure if I had him confused with another player but I had thought he never went through the Bruins system at this point.

    Anton Slepyshev has 16-19-35/48 GP/+22 this season for KHL leading CSKA .
    Oilers qualified him summer 2018 to retain rights.
    His KHL contract is up at the end of this season.
    No question IMO he could play in the NHL as a bottom six forward.
    Still just 25, 6'2", 220, can skate

    It was rumored last year around the World Championships that the Devils were among teams taking a look at Lehtonen. If he were allowed to sign for 2020-21, he'd have to sign a 1 year ELC and then he'd be UFA July 2021.

    As a player, I really like Eemeli Suomi (Ilves/Liiga). He turns 25 in December and has 47 points in 46 games this season. I’m fairly certain his contract with Ilves end this spring. Any chance he could garner some NHL interest?

    There's a rumor that the Habs brass are flying to Russia to see the goalie Vasily Demchenko. The Habs need a backup to Price next year and Primeau clearly needs another year in the AHL at the very least and Lindgren isn't the answer.

    He's still Ottawa's property until he's an UFA, so would need to go through them.

    Buffalo should sign him just to keep the Suomi - Ruotsalainen translation confusion alive.

    Wikstrand signed a KHL deal through 2021, so I assumed he'd finish out that deal. Wasn't sure if Ottawa would retain his rights by then (Wikstrand would have turned 27).

    Ottawa's rights will expire that same season as his KHL deal


    He's one that I feel could make a comeback though in the NHL

    After the solid (not always great) recent history, why wouldn't they?
    Leafs can afford to pay guys well in the AHL, they are in the same city, and they have shown they will play guys

    I think we can all guarantee you won’t sign 5 Russians this off-season. It’s just the Media looking for hits.
