I am torn and did not totally agree with Gally starting in the NHL, but in the long run this will likely help him, as he's a top talent, has size, and will learn. There was a huge debate on this here, read up on it.
This is wrong. AHL allows anyone over 18. Its an agreement the CHL has with the NHL that any player drafted from the CHL cannot play in the AHL until the season they turn 20 (except those that fall under the "Spezza rule").
