The CHL/NHL agreement that applies for what players can play in the AHL only applies for players that the time they are drafted. So Jaskin could play in the AHL if he's signed and if St. Louis wants him there.
With that said, it's almost completely unprecedented to pull a player like Jaskin out of juniors halfway through the season just to send him to Peoria.
He'll be considered an over-ager next year at the QMJHL level and will no doubt be signed and assigned to the AHL instead. Which makes perfect sense for both the Blues and the player.
As has been mentioned above, he can also sign an ATO with Peoria after his junior season comes to an end.
