He's not, he signed out of college at 23 before the 07-08 season, so his exemption ended at the end of 09-10 or after 60 NHL games, and he hit 60 midway through 09-10.
Assuming the two-way is for $105k at the AHL level, he's exempt from re-entry waivers on a recall. But if it's more, he's not; he's not been off an NHL roster (IR counts as on the roster for this purpose) since mid-08-09.
