That sounds promising. He must be a decent playmaker if he set the school assists record, and we always love defensive forwards here.

Nolan is heading to Denver in the fall. He's the only defenseman of the four.

Darcy has steadily improved over his professional career. He split last year between the ECHL and the AHL but this year he has been a mainstay in the AHL lineup. He doesn't have an NHL contract but I wouldn't be surprised if he got one this off season. He looks to be a decent defensive forward and I would be happy if he became a third or fourth liner at the NHL level.

Albany signs Reid Boucher to an ATO

Kind of surprising.

You figure he can go back to Juniors next year and is just in Albany getting some experience.

That is the most likely scenario but it just seem odd considering Albany will most likely only have 3 games left.

He could play in Albany next year if he wanted. I'm pretty sure if a player isn't drafted out of the CHL they can leave whenever they want and don't have to wait until they're 20. Not sure if that is actually the plan but it is an option.

Reid Boucher has no business being in the AHL at this point.

Like many - rather surprised about Boucher signing with Albany. Although if the rule is that because it is just a tryout and he can go back to juniors next year - kind of shrewd move by Lou to give the kid some experience and see what he can do. If it is a precursor to him going to the AHL last year than he has progressed way faster than I expected that's for sure.

There are still ways a junior-eligible player can play in the AHL. CHL seasons usually end in the final months of the NHL and AHL seasons, and once a player's season is finished, if they're signed by their NHL club, they can play in any minor league late into the year, and be returned to their CHL team the next season. The other is the ten-game rule: any junior-eligible player can play ten games in the NHL (or AHL) without it counting on the player's entry-level contract and it does not count toward the team's 50-contract limit. An example is Jared Cowen, who played one NHL game with the Ottawa Senators in 2009-10 without counting towards his contract, and joined the Binghamton Senators in the playoffs last season during their Calder Cup winning playoff run.

Ok, so he is still junior eligible. In that case, I have no problem with him getting a couple games with Albany. Good way to check on the kid's progress.

Boucher has only completed one year of hockey in the OHL and is 18.

I'm wondering what the loophole is.

The ATO may just let Boucher practice with the team and not let him play in games.

edit: Probably wouldn't have issued him #36 if he wasn't eligible to play though.

I believe the loophole is that he wasn't drafted out of the CHL, he was drafted out of the USHL.

This quote is inaccurate. If a player's team in eliminated they can sign an ATO and play in the AHL if they want. That rule only applies if they want to play full time in the AHL

Jared Knight and Greg McKegg both played in the AHL last year and returned to Juniors
