To clear up AHL/NHL lockout rules a bit since there were several questions on this in prior posts in regards to Joey McDonald...

option #1 NHL teams were allowed to send down any player that was not required to pass through waivers. (Basically guys on entry level deals that have not reached a minimum number of NHL games)

option #2
There was also a 1 week window give to NHL teams to send down any guy on a 2way contract that finished last season in the AHL or was on a clear day roster.

In regards to Joey he fails option 1 due to his age, contract, and number of NHL games played. He fails option #2 on all counts as he has a 1way deal, he did not finish last season in the AHL, and he was not on the Griffins clear day roster. (Conklin/Pearce were the goalies on the clear day list)
