He was only a UFA this time around because nobody drafted him or owned his rights.
I guess signing an ELC qualifies as entering the NHL? I was aware of those rules (27 yo/7yrs) but since he's never even played an NHL game/just signed his contract I didn't think those rules applied. I guess that makes sense though.
