That makes 50 contracts.

So if Neuvirth gets healthy and impresses Leafs will have
to make a trade before signing him

As an 18-19 year old and junior player and has not played 11 NHL games this season, Robertson's contract (as well as Semyon Der Arguchintsev's) is exempt from the 50-SPC limit.

https://www.capfriendly.com/faq#maximum_contracts

Basically, once an under-20 player is prevented from playing NHL/AHL minutes for their team (i.e. CHL or European league) until the trade deadline, the contract does not count.

Yup. We caught them before they had the full data set entered. I’m pretty sure it’s just a data flag that needs to be enabled otherwise the contract counter will include it.

As a parent, that would have been a hell of an emotional day to have your kid born 3 months premature, as Robertson was.

Here are some articles from the Prospects threads in case you don't venture there:

Wow. 3 months premature?

I didn't know that.

The video above has the short version. The Sean Shapiro article (The Athletic) has the long version.

I was going over our draft thread from June, and Deebo said the exact same thing when Robertson was drafted.

He probably would've signed earlier in the summer but wasn't technically an adult yet.

Is there a particular reason he needed to be signed so quickly?
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

‘Cause if you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it.

Also, performance bonuses, if any, can expire during the slide years while ELC control carries forward so by the time he makes the NHL at 20, it’s easier on the cap (see Kapanen).

I don’t know if Robertson has bonuses other than the standard signing bonuses (which is nice for the player who isn’t really getting paid in the CHL).

Yep.  He was deprived of 3 months of fetal development in utero, and as such, from a pediatric standpoint, he's on the same development footing as kids born in December 2001.  Besides his actual premature date of birth (which was also very late in his draft year), biologically he really ought to be in next year's draft.
