So, when they're in the CHL, you can use their "likeness" and that's perfectly fine.. but the minute they join the AHL and up until they sign their PHPA papers you can no longer use their likeness, even though they used their likeness in a previous game/roster and will be using the exact same in-game character as they used in said previous games/rosters? It's dumb.

The NHL series profits off fans love of hockey and it's star players, not the players that are jumping from the CHL to the AHL.
