The big question is why a player would do that? As the others have stated, it would have to be special circumstances.

This is the flip side to your question. Some AHL players are on an AHL contract only. The AHL team signed them, i.e. Milwaukee, not Nashville. That player can't be called up. His AHL contract would have to be terminated and the player signed to a NHL or NHL/AHL contract. Rich Peverly played in Milwaukee for 2 or 3 seasons before Nashville signed him. He came to Milwaukee as a call up from the ECHL.
