must play junior in the absence of NHL is what I meant...
It's just Hockey Canada/CHL that protects its drafted junior players from going to the AHL afaik(special exempt was made for RNH however). Biggs was drafted out of the USDP for instance, just like J.T. Miller. I was just confused whether AHL eligible guys starting the season in juniors can go to camp or not. All the guys listed there are eligible for one reason or the other.
