They can play him 5 games (typically 9) before it counts as year off his ELC. They can actually hold onto these kids for 20 games before returning them to Juniors, it just still counts as year to the NHL. It is strange to see it happen, I think Sbisa when he went to the Ducks after playing a whole year with the Flyers and was sent back to the WHL in Portland the next year was the most interesting case I have seen. Not sure how that worked. Very unusual for teams to burn the year and not just keep the player, but technically they could keep him for 20 games and I don't think that number has been reduced and still send him back.
