Mostly true.

During the regular season, only players on the Active Roster (and Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster and Non Roster lists) count aginst the cap. Once a player is removed from the Active Roster and sent down to the minors (clearing waivers, if necessary), he no longer counts against the cap, so his two-way salary never counts against the cap.

There are a few exceptions - a 35+ yo player who signs a multi year deal counts against the cap years 2+ of his deal, even if in the AHL - see Mogilney, Alexander.

During the offseason, all players on one-way contracts count against the cap and players on two-way contracts count against the cap based on their NHL salary, but prorated beased on the number of days on the NHL roster the previous season:

Quote:
(A) From July 1 until and including the last day of Training Camp of each League Year, "Averaged Club Salary" for each Club for that League Year shall be calculated as the sum of the Player Salary and Bonuses for that League Year for each and every Player, from the following categories:
...
(5) For any Player under a Two-Way SPC, the NHL portion of the SPC will be counted at a rate reflective of the Player's time on an NHL Roster (including days on Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster and Non Roster status) the prior League Year so that, for example, a Player who spent forty-six (46) days on an NHL Roster (including days on Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster and Non Roster status) in a 184-day regular season, and has a Two-Way SPC for $500,000 (NHL) / $50,000 (AHL), the portion of his NHL Salary that will count for off-season accounting purposes will be 46/184 x $500,000 = $125,000; plus
