I thought Army just said he was staying in major junior this season...?
Or is this for the prototypically retarded "strategy" of burning an entire year of an affordable entry level deal by having a younger prospect play in 4-10 relatively meaningless games at the end of the season when their major junior season is over?
We've only done that with Schwartz, Jaskin and Rattie back to back to back.
Wrong and easily proven as such. Here's the CBA (page 30):
For the purposes of this Section 10.2(a), a Player aged 18 or 19 earns a
year of professional experience by playing ten (10) or more NHL Games
in a given NHL Season, and a Player aged 20 or older (or who turns 20
between September 16 and December 31 of the year in which he signs his
first SPC) earns a year of professional experience by playing ten (10) or
more Professional Games under an SPC in a given League Year.
None of the three played 10 games Schwartz played 7 games in 2011-12 Jaskin played 2 games in 2012-13 Rattie played 2 games in 2013-14
None of them burned a "year of professional experience"
