Chris Bourque's situation was unique, but I think that had a lot to do w/ the situation he was in when he left Boston University.

but weren't there waivers granted to 19 year olds that because of our age restriction proviso of 20, back in 2004-05; most notably Patrice Bergeron that allowed him to play in Providence in the lockout season(there were a couple of others as well) that the AHL approved to play that year....

the other rule is the 10 game limit that the NHL teams have on players before it's deemed a decision if they're not old to meet the AHL LIMIT of 20, but are not allowed under other means to send the player to the minors rather than juniors. ie Jordan Staal w/ Pittsburgh comes to mind.
