Per the article I linked above, they talk a bit about Whitmore's situation which I can no longer access due to it being apparently behind a paid subscriper thingy, so I'll have to paraphrase. Basically, it said that Rochester was still interested in bringing Whitmore back, but NHL teams want their prospects to play lots in the AHL so they aren't keen on their affiliates loading up on veteran talent. I'd presume he'll get a camp invite, or sign a deal shortly after the lock-out ends.
