People who actually know something about major junior, feel free to jump in.
Glovesave is correct. That only applies to players drafted out of a Canadian junior league. That means they were playing in the league when they were drafted. For example ... if you draft Olli Maatta this year, he can't play in the AHL for 2 years. If you draft Zemgus Girgensons, he can play in the AHL immediately.

As far as Campbell being behind schedule because he didn't play in the AHL this season ... I don't think that could be further from the truth.

I'm starting to hate Jack Campbell ... and it has nothing to do with the player. Every time his name comes up it's just constant *****ing and moaning.
