I think he's still eligible to become a player, just at the expense of a technical foul.

So in this scenario, in the actual scorebook, you would count this as indirect toward the coach and that's it, correct? The thing to remember is that if they decide later to play that kid, obviously they'll get the admin tech, but also the bench technical should now be changed to a direct technical on that player, count toward his 5 for disqualification, and then remain as indirect to the HC (does that sound right? After my dumb 10 minute question I suddenly feel very gunshy!)
