To clarify, it's an agreement between the NHL and CHL and a player drafted from a CHL team will be eligible to play in the AHL when they turn 20 in the year in which a season starts. ie. a player doesn't automatically become AHL eligible on their 20th b-day. Conversely, someone who doesn't turn 20 until later in the year in which a season starts will actually be eligible to play in the AHL for a few months while still 19.
