Well, what does a junior contract actually entail?
It's rare but players from European countries do commit to colleges straight from their respective junior leagues and their eligibility is fine as long as they don't play in their respective top senior leagues (aka SEL and SEL-2 in Sweden, Division 1 and lower are fine).
Even if he receives some sort of stipend, I think he may be fine as the real issue the NCAA has is leagues that have players signed to senior contracts.
The SuperElit technically has a few of those, but of course everything the NCAA does is asterisked and they apply rules selectively.
