Note about Walker and whether the Caps can sign him this summer and some other notes: He’s a ‘94 and he falls under the same rules Hyka did last summer with Philadelphia, due to his age (not 22yo as of the recent entry draft) and playing last season overseas. My understanding is that the Caps can't sign him this summer; he’ll be back in the draft next summer. Note, this does not apply to Andreas Martinsen as he was 22yo at the time of the draft. NA based prospects who were eligible to be drafted but went undrafted are eligible to be signed to an NHL contract this summer. See the Caps signing goalie prospect Brandon Anderson a few years ago, as an example.
