Have I got this wrong? A 20 year old (junior age) player's contract does not slide so Weller will be collecting his minor league salary playing in Red Deer?

Weller was assigned to RD today.

Edit: So can/will Weller's contract slide a year? He would have been effectively 20 years of age when he signed the contract.

Capgeek's FAQ outlines the entry level slide but it doesn't really address this particular scenario.

I suppose the player and team could agree to "slide" the contract but I'm not sure if this is/was contemplated in the CBA.
