this has nothing to do with Schwindt, but I'm just wondering how he is 18 and already signing an ELC as an undrafted prospect. And also why do we not see this more often if this is allowed. I just was wondering about it so would appreciate if anybody knew more about it.

"From time to time, training camp tryout invitees who slipped through the cracks of the most recent Entry Draft (or sometimes two or three drafts) impress enough in camp to be signed to entry-level contracts. There are rules for which players are and are not eligible for such arrangements.

"Basically, it comes down to league affiliation and signing date. Undrafted players whose rights belong to CHL teams are eligible -- even at age 18 or 19 -- to sign NHL entry level contracts as unrestricted free agents. NHL teams are free to invite such players to summer development camp in July and/or the rookie and main NHL roster camps in September. A signing decision must be made by a set date when their CHL season begins."

I was unaware of this rule until you prompted me to go look for answers!

Thank you for the explanation, I was thinking about it and just had to ask. Still learning about this sport every day.
