10s cassette on 2008 Ultegra hub?

I'm looking at buying a used rear wheel. The guy that's selling it has a 9s cassette on it right now. He doesn't know which model it is. He says he bought it new in 2008. Can anyone tell me if I can fit a 10s cassette on this hub? I can't tell from the shimano technical docs without the model number.

Attached is a photo of the hub.

It will work fine, if he says it was bought in 2008, it's probably a 6600 hub, if you use a Shimano 10 speed cassette, you will need to use a spacer, the cassette will come with this.

You will also need 10-speed Shimano shifters and 10- speed chain.

My bike has a 10s drive train on it so the shifters and chain won't be a problem. I just want to swap out the rear wheel and put my own cassette on it.
