Re: Protected or Free?

Have the NAHL coach that wants him contact his current coach.

Agree to release and transfer or a trade.

Re: Protected or Free?

He has to be released to play elsewhere in the NAHL. Just went through this, almost identical, except all parties agreed to release. New NAHL team would not even let him practice without a release. Agreed with poster about asking new NAHL coach to contact old team, or player could ask head coach / GM to kindly release him.

Re: Protected or Free?

If he is not on USA Protected list (or Defected list for a player that didn't report which didn't sound like the case) he is a free agent and free to sign with anyone!
