Its a legal issue -- the NHL, AHL and CHL got a deal that any junior needs to play their years in the CHL before they go to the AHL.

However, any player, who have played proffesional already in the Europe, aren't seen as "juniors", and therefor aren't hit by that deal so they can still go to the AHL.

So any European who have played in a mens league in Europe can go to the AHL at any age; while a european who only have played junior hockey in europe and every NA have to go to the CHL untill they are 20.
