They can send him back to Quebec, BUT it uses up a year of the ELC.

The Flyers did this with Sbisa--they kept him up for about the first half of the season. But then they assigned him back to juniors--using up the first year on the ELC so he only had 2 years left. If they send him down before the 9 games, then he would still have 3 years on his ELC (and become a free agent one year later).
