Bridgeport Sound Tigers website reported Tomas Marcinko, signed a one year, two-way contract on Monday.

2005 second round pick, Dustin Kohn and Jack Hillen have not been qualified.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio has a list (no idea if complete/final) of all NHL/AHL players not qualified here that apparently includes Robin Figren/Rob Hissey, who both signed overseas, but were eligible to be qualified anyway as Jeremy Colliton was.

Rob Schremp was not qualified by Winnipeg.

NYIFC Comments:
These players will likely enter the market come 7/1, however any player not qualified can be re-signed at any time.

Not surprised about Jack Hillen. It was a good risk Snow took signing him at the cost of giving up a year of eligibility, which is why he played his first two games two games in the NHL. The depth chart speaks for itself that there is a lot of competition for jobs here on defense.

Former prospect Jared Spurgeon was not signed here after being drafted, he was initially invited to Minnesota's prospect camp last July. Some organizations are a better fit than others.

A lot of quality players around the NHL, were not given qualifying offers. Roster spots/cap space are tight.

2005/second rounder pick, Dustin Kohn, not being qualified means the final draft class of Mike Milbury's tenure can now be written here.

Outside of Ryan Smyth's brief time here, no positive impact on the NHL organization from the the class of 2005. Obviously not a formula for sustained success.

Islander scout Trent Klatt: discussed the Islanders draft for six minutes.

Garth Snow had a brief video on Bruno Gervais, who was signed by Tampa Bay on Monday to a one-way NHL contract.

Free agency section opened at NYIFC. 2011 Draft section moved to prospect area before being deleted. (all new draft picks, in NYIFC prospect blog)
