Actually, you were right the first time. If Fitzpatrick signed a two-way deal for less than $95K, he would not be subject to recall waivers.

Recall waivers only apply to players earning >$95K. Any player earning less is not subject to recall waivers under any conditions. The 400+ pro games / <40/80 NHL games clause is an exception for players earning >$95K who would otherwise be exposed to recall waivers.
