It depends how much he makes. If it is over $900k then yes. The threshold is the minimum salary +350k which places it at $900k for now.

I highly doubt he is over $900k though. It would be really, really dumb to sign an NCAA free agent to a deal that is going to hit your cap immediately (unless you expect him to immediately contribute at the NHL).

For comparison, Matt Read's cap hit has been $900k on his current deal.

Edit: Also just saw the post above mine...he most certainly would not hit the cap "now" as in this season as he is an ATO (so not a contract). I was speaking towards his actual contract next year...sorry.
