When National Hockey League teams select College players in the draft, they're taking a risk, as some players will stay the full 4 years in College, and then become free agents and choose which team they want to play for.

But this time we are seeing the opposite situation happen, the Philadelphia Flyers are refusing to sign one of their prospects, which allows him to test free agency.
In 2018, with the 19th overall pick, the Philadelphia Flyers drafted Jay O'Brien out of the U.S. National Under-18 Team. He has played the last three seasons at Boston University, where he scored 32 points in 39 games last season:

NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman reported that the Flyers have chosen not to sign their former first round pick, and he will test free agency:
The Flyers and the player had to make a decision to sign and I have heard that the decision has been made, the Flyers will not sign him and that allows O'Brien to test free agency. He's 23 years old and he can pick which team or organization he wants to play for.

The rules of the NHL's collective bargaining agreement, states that because the Flyers did not sign their draft pick, they will receive a 2nd round pick in the upcoming draft.
