Aces Announce Qualifying Offers

July 1, 2015 - ECHL (ECHL) - Alaska Aces News Release

The Alaska Aces announced Wednesday the eight players who received qualifying offers from the team, including: defensemen Brad Richard and Justin Hamonic, along with forwards Corey Syvret, Olivier Archambault, Greg Wolfe, Dean Chelios, Slater Doggett and Stephen Perfetto.

Players who had already signed a contract by June 30 did not need to receive a qualifying offer.

Each team was entitled to reserve the rights to a maximum of eight qualified players. Of the eight qualified players, no more than four could be veterans (260 regular season professional hockey games played as of the start of the upcoming 2015-16 season). Players on open qualifying offers cannot be traded.

The qualifying offer must remain open for acceptance until Aug. 1 at which time the qualifying offer becomes null and void and the team may sign the qualified player to any salary or may elect to take no further action. Teams that extend a valid qualifying offer to a non-veteran player shall retain the rights to that qualified player for one playing season.

If a restricted free agent is not signed to either an offer sheet or a contract by an ECHL team by Aug. 31, the player shall be deemed an unrestricted free agent.
