Scheifele has 10G and 7A for 17PTS in 8 games since going back to Barrie. Classic tweener. Too good for the O (or at least, isn't being pushed to the next level), but can't play AHL.
an "exceptional" status is exactly what this is meant to protect against.

the Whole agreement to not allow under 20's in the AHL was put into place because the CHL wanted to keep its "exceptional" players in the league for as long as possible.

No way they'd agree to such a status
