Returning NHL players

An NHL player may return and play for their CHL club at any time* prior to the November 3 deadline if he had signed a contract with an NHL club for the 2008-2009 season and is eligible to return to the European club with approval by both the IIHF and the NHL,  if:

a) he played for the relevant CHL club during the 2007-2008 season.
or:
b) he played for the relevant CHL club during three full consecutive seasons prior to the 2007-2008 season, meaning the seasons 2004-2005, 2004-2006 and 2005-2007.

Note: If the player played for more than one IIHF club during the 2007-2008 season, he may return to any of the clubs he represented during that season providing that his return is in accordance with applicable transfer regulations.  

* For clarity: A returning NHL player who fullfills the provisions a) or b) must be registered at the latest on Monday and be on the 25-man roster, prior to Wednesday's game.
