So, there's never been a WJC eligible played moved from an NHL team to an AHL one?
If they are junior aged and they came from the CHL, they have a maximum of 9 games to play in the NHL before their entry level contract locks in. After the 10th game, they can only play in the NHL. They cannot play in the AHL, as per the inter league agreement. If they are sent down to their junior club, they cannot be called up to the NHL for the remainder of the season, unless on an emergency basis.

This is not the case for college players, as I don't believe there is an agreement in place. I don't think Euro leagues have anything in place either. For players from these other leagues, they are allowed to play in the AHL.
