(yes, they were all 20 or older)

I guess I don't understand why the agreement preventing CHL players under 20 from playing in the AHL would remain in place during a lockout.

but im slow when it comes to this stuff
The players are signed to CHL contracts. I don't recall the exact details but I believe it gives the CHL their exclusive rights for 4 years or until their junior eligibility expires. From a CHL point of view the agreement allows players age 20 or over to play in the AHL rather than prevents those less than age 20 from playing. It's basically a transfer agreement.
