For kids drafted out of the CHL who are not 20 by December 31st of the year they would be turning Pro, they must remain in the CHL. For Kids drafted out of the USNTDP or Europe who go on to play in the CHL (Like Morin), they can turn AHL Pro before turning 20 in the same year because they're not bound to the transfer agreement between the CHL/NHL.

Of course, any player, drafted out of any league can make the NHL at any point... but for kids drafted out of the CHL, it's the NHL or CHL until they turn 20 in the year they'd be making the jump to the AHL/Pro.
