In this case, what reasons are there that he needs to be sent down? Is there a rule stating AHL teams can't play rookies on 3rd lines?
Rookies yes, but not underagers. The 3 and 4th lines are primarily energy and grinding players and as an underager he has not become physically mature enough to match up against the older competition. It is easier to play on top two lines if a player is highly skilled and plays that role.
I feel he would be better suited for a lower tier league for now. That is all.
