Maybe it's this clause?

How does this CBA apply to NHL contracted Players in the AHL?

It is recognized that Players who are signed to a National Hockey League (NHL) contract are bound by that contract, and the terms and conditions thereof while they are assigned to an AHL Club. It is agreed that no provision of this Agreement shall be applicable to a player playing under the NHL contract if such provision conflicts with his benefits or obligations as set forth in his NHL contract.
Because he is just starting his ELC he is considered a rookie by the NHL so the AHL considers him a rookie to? Just spitballing
