That's correct, because of his birth date and not turning 20 until after the end December 31st next season (his birthday is in March), he cannot play in the AHL next season. It's either the OHL or NHL. For Junior players from the CHL you must either have 4 years Junior experience or be 20 years of age by December 31st of the coming season in order to be eligible to play a full season in the AHL.
With that being said, CHL players are eligible to play in the AHL once their Junior season is over (not making the playoffs or being eliminated, etc) even if they do not yet meet the age and/or eligibility criteria.
