Yep. CHL players can't play in the AHL until they're 20 because they would still be eligible to play in the CHL until then (the rule was meant to ensure that CHL talent stays in jr to develop if they're not ready for the bigs yet). Since NCAA players forfeit their college eligibility the minute they sign a pro contract, they can stay in the AHL before 20 years old because they've got nowhere else to go.
