<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>exo2769</b></div><div>I think we're 99.9% saying the same thing. I thought it was juniors because A.) he was drafted, but also B.) the AHL is an NHL affiliate in which the player can be brought up or down. Example being Cal Foote. (link below) He only spent 6 games on an NHL roster in his career, but he lost a year of eligibility last year with the Syracuse Crunch last year despite being 19 for most of the year. I actually think the CBA states an exact date...August 15th comes to mind. I'd have to go check the CBA. But if you're 18 or 19 as of August 15th...I believe.

So Cal Foote's contract didn't slide because he turned 20 before January 1st. If his birthday was after Jan 1st it would have slid.
I'm not sure of CHL birthdate cutoffs for when a player is considered an overager (I'd guess the CBA follows the CHL dates here), but i"m guessing that is why Cal was allowed to play in the AHL and not sent back to juniors.

EDIT: After further research, a player is considered an overager in the CHL if he turns 20 before Dec 31st of that playing season. So the CBA rules do follow CHL rules in regards to eligibility for CHL players to play in the AHL and contract slides for non-CHL players playing in the AHL.

Hope this makes sense. Sometimes this stuff is hard to articulate via text. ESPECIALLY LTIR rules. That stuff is complicated as hell.
