In the 2 year ELC offer,there is one exception.

From October 16 NHL proposal

There were several contradicting reports out there Tuesday regarding the entry-level system, but multiple sources confirmed the new proposal would see ELS go from three years to two years in length. The one caveat is that if youíre a player for example thatís coming from college and joining your NHL team late in the season -- think Chris Kreider of the Rangers -- that doesnít count against your two-year, entry-level commitment. You would still have to play two full seasons under an entry-level deal. What the offer Tuesday laid out is two full seasons of entry level.

Jack Johnson is another example. Austin Smith and Jaden Schwartz too. Player agents want NHL teams to play their college free agent clients in 1 game after leaving school so its counts as 1 season off the ELC.
