It's 30 days, but I believe that only counts when he's on the NHL roster. Here's the language from the 2005 CBA; a waiver eligible player can be loaned to another league if:
(a) Regular Waivers were requested and cleared during the Playing Season Waiver Period; and
(b) the Player has not played in ten (10) or more NHL Games cumulative since Regular Waivers on him were last cleared, and more than thirty (30) days cumulative on an NHL roster have not passed since Regular Waivers on him were last cleared.
So unless I'm mistaken, if he was recalled for 5 games over 10 days, he'd still have another 5 games/20 days on the NHL roster before he became waiver eligible again.
