He can be sent back to Juniors at any point in the Season. If he plays 10 games or more, it counts as a year on his Entry level contract. If he is on the team's roster for 40 games or more (that's on the roster, not games actually played) then it counts as a Accrued Season towards his reaching UFA status, which is 7 Accrued Seasons, or 27 years of age.
