Question...Are 2-way deals under the cap?

Do they count under the cap?

For example:

Player with 600.000 two way deal counts 600.000 or 60.000?

Thank U

As long as he's with the NHL team, his salary counts against the cap. If he gets assigned to the minors, he comes off.

Mostly true.

During the regular season, only players on the Active Roster (and Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster and Non Roster lists) count aginst the cap. Once a player is removed from the Active Roster and sent down to the minors (clearing waivers, if necessary), he no longer counts against the cap, so his two-way salary never counts against the cap.

There are a few exceptions - a 35+ yo player who signs a multi year deal counts against the cap years 2+ of his deal, even if in the AHL - see Mogilney, Alexander.

During the offseason, all players on one-way contracts count against the cap and players on two-way contracts count against the cap based on their NHL salary, but prorated beased on the number of days on the NHL roster the previous season:

Quote:
(A) From July 1 until and including the last day of Training Camp of each League Year, "Averaged Club Salary" for each Club for that League Year shall be calculated as the sum of the Player Salary and Bonuses for that League Year for each and every Player, from the following categories:
...
(5) For any Player under a Two-Way SPC, the NHL portion of the SPC will be counted at a rate reflective of the Player's time on an NHL Roster (including days on Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster and Non Roster status) the prior League Year so that, for example, a Player who spent forty-six (46) days on an NHL Roster (including days on Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster and Non Roster status) in a 184-day regular season, and has a Two-Way SPC for $500,000 (NHL) / $50,000 (AHL), the portion of his NHL Salary that will count for off-season accounting purposes will be 46/184 x $500,000 = $125,000; plus

To pile on, I believe that bonuses in all entry level contracts (which are considered two-way contracts) count against the cap if the player plays in the NHL during the season.

If a player is on the NHL roster, all performance bonuses, earned or not, count against the cap.

Once a player is send down, any already earned bonuses will still count, but any remaining unearned bonuses (as well as any reamining salary) will no longer count against the cap.

During the season, a player on a two-way contract only counts against the cap if he is with the NHL club. If he is in the minors, he doesn't count against the cap.

Over the summer, a player on a two-way contract counts against the cap only if they played in the NHL the immediately preceding season. The fraction of the NHL salary that counts against the cap is the fraction of time they were in the NHL.
