Injury Update:

Josh Brown ‏@BrownRecord

Kitchener Rangers still waiting for results from MRI on Radek Faksa's (DAL) lower body injury. He remains out indefinitely. #stars #ohl
Early in the year there were several reports indicating several GM's are pushing for the NHL to allow 19 year old players in the AHL. The agreement between the NHL and CHL expired last year, and I think they only created a temporary agreement for this season IIRC. As part of the temporary compromise this season, 19 year old players who previously played in the NHL as an 18 year old (RNH with EDM for example) were permitted in the AHL.

MRI on the lower body sounds like a potential season ending injury so Faksa's stay in the OHL could be over if rules change over this summer. The reports indicated that the GM's were seeking a rule change allowing all 19 year old players drafted in the 1st round to be permitted in the AHL from what I remember.
