8 Year Contracts
How does an 8th year work for an UFA in the NHL?
AnswerJul 31, 2021
A team can only sign a player to an 8 year contract if they were on their roster at the most recent trade deadline. The only exception is if a player is traded after the trade deadline but still has 1 year remaining on their contract; the new team can sign him to an 8 year contract at the start of free agency, they don't need to wait until after the next trade deadline.
