Yes. The player's current team can promote him or another team can sign him to a contract. Practice squad members are considered free agents therefore, should another team sign one of the practice squad members, no compensation is given to the player's former team. Should another team sign a practice squad player, the player must be placed on his new team's 53 man roster for a minimum of three weeks. The 2008 season salary for practice squad members is $5,200 per week.

What is a rental player in the NHL?

A player is called a "rental player" when a team that thinks it has a good shot at going a long way in the playoffs trades for a guy with 1 year left on his contract. This player is usually a player, often a veteran, whose contract runs out at the end of the season and the team knows it can't , or won't , resign him when the season is over. The team , in effect, "rents" this player for the season in hopes he will help them win a championship, or at least go a long way in the playoffs.

What is a free agent in hockey?

Free agents come in two main categories, unrestricted and restricted. In both cases a player's contract with his team has expired. The difference is when a player reaches the age of 25 ( and meets some other conditions) he owes his former team no obligations and is free to sign with any team in the league, including his old team. Thus he is UNRESTRICTED in who he can sign with. Prior to age 25, his rights are kept by his old team. Even if another team offers him a contract, it can be matched by his old team. Thus the player is RESTRICTED in who he can sign with.

What does it mean when an NBA player is 'waived'?

A waiver is a temporary status for players who are released by their team. A player released between August 15th and the end of the regular season stays on waivers for 48 hours. A player released at any other time stays on waivers for 10 days. During the waiver period other teams may claim a waived player. If more than one team tries to claim the player, the team with the worst record gets him. If a player on waivers is claimed, the new team acquires his existing contract and pays the remainder of his salary. There is also a fee of $1,000, payable to the league office, for claiming a waived player.A team can claim a waived player only if one of the following is true:The team is far enough under the salary cap to fit the player's entire salary.The team has a disabled player exception for at least the player's salary.The team has a trade exception for at least the player's salary.The player's contract is for one or two seasons and he is paid the minimum salary. If no team claims a waived player, he is said to have "cleared waivers." The player may sign with the team of his choice at that point. The player's new team only pays the pro-rated minimum salary to the player. The player's original team continues to pay the balance of the player's salary. For this reason, few players are actually claimed while on waivers.If a player is waived after March 1, he is ineligible to be included in the playoff roster of any team that signs him for the remainder of that season.
