The CHL has an agreement with the NHL which states that anybody under 20 (as in does not turn 20 until after January 1 of that season) and has not completed 4 years of service in the CHL cannot be assigned to the AHL. So Scheifele will not be able to head to St. John's even next year.

Once their junior team has been eliminated they may join the AHL team though is the one exception (so when Barrie is eliminated if St. John's is still playing he can join St. John's).
