And yes he is eligible to play in the playoffs. Pens head coach Todd Richards said that he has no problem putting him into the line-up if they need to.

I think anyone signed to an ATO is instantly eligible. Nemec signed one a few years back and played right away. Which makes me wonder since Jeffrey did actually sign his entry level deal in the fall can he play? How did they handle Letang last year after he signed his entry level, was he on the clear day roster for the playoffs? Is Jeffrey now?
