That's what I'm thinking/hoping for. At $400 a week (including lodging and some food) isn't a lot to hang your hat on in the end ($1,600 a month or approx. $10K for the season - he'd get that going to school - $5K from the Q and $5K from UNB as AFA). I think we'll get a better idea as the season starts if he'll see any call-up time based on what line he plays and his production.

Teams are required in 2013-14 to pay rookie players a minimum salary of $400 [link]

Interesting story on Colby Armstrong on his stint in the ECHL during the lockout. [link]
