Is that true though? He was technically playing in another league when the NHL season started (as he was on a PTO). Would this be like O'Reilly where he would have to go through Waivers to join an NHL team since he wasn't under contract? (or is that just the case for playing over-seas)?

EDIT: CBA says that only applies to leagues outside of North America, so your statement appears to be correct

In the event a professional or former professional Player plays in a league outside
North America
after the start of the NHL Regular Season, other than on Loan from his
Club, he may thereafter play in the NHL during that Playing Season (including Playoffs)
only if he has first either cleared or been obtained via Waivers. For the balance of the
Playing Season, any such Player who has been obtained via Waivers may be Traded or
Loaned only after again clearing Waivers or through Waiver claim
