I'm pretty sure Stizzle is right. The 9 game rule is only for junior aged players. If he only signs an ATO for the rest of this season, he obviously won't be on the big club, but if he signs an ELC to start this year it's going to burn one year. The Flyers may use this as a perk to convince him to sign. It will be interesting to see if they put him on the reserve list like the Rangers did Kreider, making him eligible for the playoffs. Still a lot to play out, but he could be a wildcard.
