His salary is 875k, but with bonuses his cap hit could be more then that (there are up to 850k in bonuses he can reach this season). However, there is a cushion that if these bonuses are reached and put a team over the cap, they can be counted against next years cap. So to be cap compliant, the Flyers do only have to fit his 875k salary under the cap.
Last year there was no cushion that allowed you to apply bonuses to the next season, as the CBA could be re-opened. That is why guys like Kane and Doughty and such counted for large cap hits, team had to also make space for their bonuses in case they reached them.
