Anyway, looks like he was sent back to the Soo over contract issues. Sounds like Nolan didn't want to go to Ontario and rejected the two way deal.

No, if Nolan earns an ELC after playing in juniors this season, the ELC would be over after the 2012-13 season, just as it would have been if he had signed a two-way deal with Manchester this year and earned an ELC the following year.

Not a smart move by Nolan. Late round CHL picks drafted as 20 year olds usually have to sign with the AHL team and then, if they play well enough, earn ELCs the following season, a la Azevedo. He's probably hoping he can force the issue a la Campbell but third round CHL picks drafted as 20 year olds usually get ELCs and late round picks usually don't.
