Yes, Braydon Schenn was recalled under emergency conditions for the Kings earlier this season and played at Vancouver, then returned to junior.
Also, way back when, Hartford recalled their 1st round pick from the previous summer J-S Giguere from the Halifax Mooseheads after Sean Burke broke his thumb to backup Jason Muzzatti. Giguere sat three games as backup before getting his start in a wild Hartford-Boston game that saw him allow four first period goals before getting pulled at the intermission, then the Whalers coming all the way back only to see Marek Malik hit Glen Murray with a beautiful outlet pass in his own end and skate right by Murray and Steve Heinze as they went in 2 on 0 on Muzzatti and scored the game-winning goal. It was right after Christmas...I got tickets from a family friend as a gift and won't forget that anytime soon... Giguere went back to juniors, was traded the summer Hartford moved to Carolina, then bounced around the Calgary, before finding success in Anaheim under Allaire's guidance...
Way off-topic...but the answer is - yes, players can be recalled from juniors under emergency conditions...
