Veteran NHL goalie signs with Eastern Conference team after already signing with another team

However, today a rather odd scenario has surfaced for one veteran backup goaltender. Today it was announced that the New Jersey Devils had signed Keith Kinkaid to a 1-year 2 way contact. The deal sees Kinkaid make 750K in the NHL and $350K in the AHL.
So what's the problem? Well earlier this summer Kinkaid signed a 1-year deal with the unaffiliated Chicago Wolves of the AHL.
While this move gives the Devils some additional goaltending depth it will be interesting to see how this situation shakes out for the Wolves. For the upcoming season the Wolves have elected to NOT have an NHL affiliate and instead will build their own team.
More details are expected about Kinkaid's deal as the day goes on.
SHOULD KINKAID HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SIGN 2 CONTRACTS?
