Does spending time on IR count as an accrued season towards UFA?

I ask because the Flames just recalled Baertschi.

He's played 10 games for the Flames this year. He spent 11 games on the injury list.

I know the definition of an accrued season this lockout shortened season is 23 games on the ''roster''. Not games played.

If IR time counts, then the Flames are burning 1 of their 7 years of control on Baerstchi as soon as 2 games go by. Which means he could be a UFA at age 26 instead of 27.
