I think it is because he already played for the under-18 team in Sweden last spring. Hockey Canada does not move players back down to lower levels once they've graduated to a higher level. I don't think it's a rule, (but it might be) it's just the way they operate.

Yes he did but I think that was an exception to the rule due to the lockout.

You can only play on the team once and he chose to play last year instead of this year. There was an article on this last year.
