However if you want to go to a different league, be it BCHL, US College etc you can still do that.
Since the Chiefs say they have him on their 50PPL, it looks very cut and dry to me.
The problem is that people keep reading rules from the WHL and think they apply to the entire Canadian Hockey League, when they don't. The rule clearly states that he has to play for Spokane, but only IF he was still going to play in the WHL. The rule says "at the Major Junior Level" but it is only at the Major Junior Level in the dub.
Basically, the Chiefs are trying to twist the nads of the OHL, but they can't win this one. Sorry.
