Or play him a couple times at least see if he's NHL caliber. Perhaps they're keeping him up to give him NHL paychecks.

Still wouldn't be surprised if he isn't signed.
Playoff games do count.

Also they only have 1 non-emergency recall left, so if they send him down, they'd be tight to call him back.
