    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:

    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.
