I applaud the effort but what classifies these players as AHL free agents as compared to NHL free agents?

54 LW MATT KASSIAN HOU 6-5, 250-pound heavyweight split season between Houston, Minnesota

Split season between Minny and Houston? So he is AHL free agent????
LOL Tom. Nobody was good enough to be #5, #9, #67, #69, #95, #100, #112, #115, #120, #127, #128, #166, #173, #212, #215, #231 and #247 either.

I admit i'm not a contract kind of a nerd but I wonder if they work at all like the ECHL in some aspects? Guys sometimes start up in the ECHL and then a team from the AHL asks for their services and they spend time like a week, month or more up there. Then might get released come clear day or playoff time. I guess what i'm hinting at is could a guy that starts on an AHL only contract get the call up to the NHL? Like an emergency situation or something? If he is sent back down is it like a waiver clearing thing or whatever? Maybe thats what happened. I mean Minnesota was pretty bad this year.
