If 2010-11 is considered as the 1st year of his NHL deal for waiver purposes, he's exempt for next season.
Waivers don't use the Sept. 15 age cutoff except for 18 yo, since they can't even have been drafted or signed at 18 if born after Sept. 15.

He was 20 for 2009-10 and not 19, got 4 years exemption and not 5.
