Halifax, assuming Voracek is going to make Columbus for the 08-09 season, releases him at the end of the 07-08 season so they can draft another import. All of the other CHL teams assume the same and NO TEAM re-drafts him in the CHL Import draft.
So, technically he is not eligible to play for any Major junior team.

Would Voracek then be eligible to play in the AHL at 19?
Actually, he would be eligible, and he'd already BEEN drafted by Halifax, so his status is unchanged. He would be AHL-ineligible.
