18 and 19 year old players in the AHL will have their ELC slide, but they still count against the limit AFAIK.
St. Croix didn't have his contract count towards the limit last season. Unless there's some provision where it counts for AHL players only (which I think is extremely unlikely). It's a moot point in this case, as Tolchinsky wouldn't be able to play in the AHL next season.
