That rule only applies when the CHL team that owns the rights of the player is still playing.

So if an 18 year old Canadian kid is drafted but is playing in the CHL, he can't join the AHL until he is 20 to play in the regular season. But if his CHL team fails to make the playoffs or their season ends before the AHL season ends, then he can go.

Bulmer was able to join the Aeros last season for a few games of the regular season and then the entire playoff run, if I remember right. Dumba could make the Aeros for the entire playoffs if his season ends by the 21st.
