Just realized something.  DeKeyser was signed to a 2 year deal, but aren't Entry Level Contracts 3 years?

I believe they max out at 3 years. Correct me if i'm wrong, but I had thought age could play in ELC's, and due to DeKeyser being 23 when he signed his, his may be maxed at 2?

 

Did some research and yes, that is correct:

 

Players between the ages of 18 and 21 must sign "entry-level" contracts for their first three NHL seasons. Those aged 22-23 are entry-level players for two years, those aged 24 for a single year.

I wondered the same thing when he signed.  Maybe 2 year ones can be given to guys over 20. Probably to do with him being 23.

You are probably right.  I've just always seen 3 year ELC's so I thought maybe it was required or something.
