I think it goes like this, if the player is in the CHL when they are drafted they cannot leave for the AHL before they are 20. If the player is drafted out of Europe, they are eligible for the AHL as young as 18, I believe. Marincin was drafted out of Europe and then came to the CHL, so we could have played him in the AHL this season, but we opted for the CHL instead.
