Yup, that's the situation. Any player on the NHL roster on deadline day cannot be be sent to the AHL. Here's the CBA bit:

CBA 13.12(j) A Player may be Loaned to a club of any league affiliated with the League
at any time up to 3:00 p.m. New York time of the fortieth (40th) day immediately
preceding the final day of the Regular Season (the "Trade Deadline"). Following this
period only the Player or Players who have been Recalled during such restricted period
under Article 13.12(l) or 13.12(m) may be Loaned back to the member club of the
affiliated league from which they were Recalled
It's common for teams to send waiver exempt players back down to the AHL right before the trade deadline then recall them afterward. Retaining the flexibility to demote them again before the end of the season. Summers is here for the rest of the regular season for sure. Stone should be unless there's some sort of loophole that he was originally called up on emergency.
