The only reason it wiped off a year of his ELC is because he signed it at the age of 20. It would be like if Hickey were able to go back to juniors next year. He would lose a year from his ELC (being 20 year old).....but he would not be an RFA when it expired because he would only have 2 years of professional experience.
