Under 20? OHL or NHL for you. However, if you've played a certain number of games in the NHL already, then you can play in the AHL. I believe that's why you see some under 20's in the AHL right now.

Holden is a veritable vault of knowledge on this stuff - I'm sure he'll chime in with a better explanation than mine, but that's the Cole's Notes version.
