He won't count against the 50 limit right now because the SPC won't start until next year. Next year he will be sent back to juniors and the contract won't count against the limit. He won't actually be getting paid other than signing bonus money.
18 and 19 year old players in the AHL will have their ELC slide, but they still count against the limit AFAIK.
