It's the "work around" for the 50-game rule. The NHL has set a minimum assignment in the AHL last season of 50-games for players on NHL contracts to be eligible to play in the AHL this season if there is a lockout. TK was far short of the 50-games. There are rumors that the number MIGHT be dropped to around 30, but for now it sits at 50-games so don't be surprised to see more teams use this strategy to stock the AHL and keep the fringe guys playing.
