That seems ridiculous.
I actually couldn't find anything to confirm or deny that statement.

J22's post doesn't provide a link.

Just looked it up in the cba, http://www.nhlpa.com/inside-nhlpa/co...ning-agreement. Its in section 12.10 and J22 is correct.

This is a prove it deal if there ever was one.

4th line shouldn't be all that hard to prove. Worst case he's the 13th forward or starts the year in Iowa and is first call up when a center goes down and everyone moves up.

If he doesn't make the team out of camp, he's heading back to reap the rewards of his big contract in the Swiss league. It's the Wild or nothing, no Iowa involved for him.

I don't see how Almond could have contracts with two different teams to play during the same season and both be valid. How would that work exactly? His Swiss team's (Geneve-Servette) last pre-season game is 8-29-14 (they haven't posted their regular season schedule as far as I can tell) so I'll assume their first regular season game is in early September or several weeks before the Oct 2nd start date for the NHL. If Almond doesn't make the Wild roster out of camp would he just fly back to Geneva and pick-up his 5 year contract even after missing several weeks of their regular season?

Seems more likely he got a release from Geneve-Servette before he signed with the Wild.

More likely his contract in the swiss league that he just signed has an NHL clause. Players go back to Europe all the time, this is not a unique situation.
