Has to pass through waivers to be sent to the AHL (unless it's a conditioning assignment) because of the number of years he's been in the league (just like if you tried to send down a regular 27 year old down).
Since he'll need to prove himself at the AHL level to prove his durability and skillset, he needs to go through the waiver wire to be sent down to that level.
