Signed Prospects
« on: December 16, 2018, 05:24:34 PM »
The Leafs have started the process of signing some of their recent draft picks before their rights expire. Ian Scott and Semyon Der-Arguchintsev have already been signed and don't currently count against their 50 SPC limit but another signed draft pick, Jesper Lindgren contract does count even though he is spending this season developing in Sweden. Does anyone know why Lindgren's contract counts and the 2 others don't?

My guess is that Lindgren is playing in a professional league where as the 2 kids aren't.

Total NHL contracts per team = 50 (including two-way contracts and NHL contracts in the minors), players who are meet the following three conditions do not count to this limit: 1. The player is 18 or 19 years of age. 2. Is in a junior league, and 3. who have not played 10 NHL games the current season

Lindgren is 21 and in a pro league (Liiga) as Guilt Trip mentioned.
