As always, I defer to kdb or LS on this question though.
From LS earlier:

And CBA, Article 50.9(g)

Which states in part:
Quote:
The Re-Entry Waiver procedure will not, however, be applicable to Veteran Minor League Players defined as follows: (i) for goaltenders, Players who have: (A) played in 180 or more professional games in North America (NHL, AHL, ECHL), and (B) not spent more than 80 NHL games on the NHL roster over the prior two (2) seasons or more than 40 NHL games on the NHL roster in the immediately prior season; and (ii) for defensemen and forwards, Players who have: (A) played in 320 or more professional games in North America (NHL, AHL, ECHL), and (B) not spent more than not spent more than 80 NHL games on the NHL roster over the prior two (2) seasons or more than 40 NHL games on the NHL roster in the immediately prior season.

So it looks like he is safe if I read that correctly.
