PLAYERS ELIGIBLE FOR SLIDE:
- 18 and 19 years old players (i.e. not turned yet 20 yet) as of October 1st who have not played 10 NHL games in their career yet.
- players with 0 NHL games that get signed during the season
*NOTE -- All players listed under "SLIDING CONTRACTS" on your weekly sheet do not count towards your team contract and aren't eligible to be used in your active roster.
A change from previous seasons, you must declare which sliding contract you want to use towards your active roster. All sliding contracts will not count towards your contracts unless you choose to play them.
When you "activate" a sliding contract, their waiver status will change from sliding (the blue S symbol) to waiver exempt (the purple down arrow). That player will count towards your contracts and is eligible for your lineup for the balance of the season.
You can't "activate" a sliding contract if you're currently at 50-or-more contracts.
