Would he not be thrown back in the draft?

No. Like other four-year uni players, after a certain date, he can sign as a UFA anywhere he wants.

To muddy the waters a little more, they still have to sign an entry level contact and are subject to RFA rules after that contract expires, it is just that they can do it with any team they choose. 

So not completely a "UFA".  An RFA that can sign with a team of their choosing.

Thanks to a game built around stickhandling, the Jets have a tantalizing prospect in Nathan Smith

Quote

For many players, a sub-point per game 20-year-old USHL season, average skating and size, and erratic decision-making would hardly register on the prospect radar. But Smith’s not an ordinary prospect. It’s visible in his, quite frankly, ridiculous stick skills and his atypical hockey background.

Smith was born, raised and trained in Florida, making him the first player of that status to be drafted into the NHL. He started with street hockey and then roller hockey, before converting to ice hockey later than many.

Two seasons ago, in Smith’s first year of draft eligibility, he was playing High School in Florida. Then, he went took a massive step up to the USHL and was instantly Cedar Rapids’ best player.  

The Jets took a gamble Smith, banking on him continuing that upward development curve. Smith will have time to do it. He’ll join Minnesota State University next season, reunited with his Mitchell High linemate, Lucas Sowder.

And, you still need to draw him over to North America. He could have stayed in Sweden.

He signed 2 year deal last year i read so he should be still there unless he's got some sort of Vesa escape clause.

 

They picked him last year. Most those deals are player option deals. Kid got his ElC nhl deal. Hes moose bound now.
