In preparation for the 2016-17 season, we have slid the entry level slide eligible contracts.



As explained in the CBA FAQ, if a player who is signed to an entry-level contract and is 18 or 19 years of age (as of September 15 of the signing year) does not play in a minimum of 10 NHL games (including both regular season and playoffs; AHL games do not count), their contract is considered to ‘slide’, or extend, by one year.

In total there were 105 eligible contracts, all of which can be viewed on the entry level slide page
