Stortini/Hemsky question

Does anybody know why Zach can play in the ahl at 18 while the Oilers had to bring Hemsky to the big team or leave him in junior when he was older than that?

All the Oil ever said was that they couldn't "send" Ales there, so was it just a case of Ales not wanting to play there or was he unavailable to go there as a euro?

The rule has to do with the CHL. Zach Parise as an NCAA player has no age restrictions on playing in the AHL. If you play a year in the CHL then you have to either have 4 years of CHL experience to play in the AHL or be 20 years old.

Same situation for Ryan Kesler of Vancouver this past year.

Edit, I didn't see the Stortini post. If he has played 4 years of junior and is 19 or is 20 years old he can play in the AHL.

My other guess is that it could be an amateur tryout contract. The Penguins just did the same with Ryan Whitney.

Slats is right, it is an amateur tryout contract. Stortini is free to play in Toronto after his team's season is done.

In Hemsky's case, I think he would have to get through the clear day roster rules too as well as what Slats pointed out.

How does an amateur tryout work, could Zach stay in the ahl next season if he plays well or is it really just a temporary work permit?

That's a good way of putting it I think.
