I believe there is a minimum amount of games you have to play in the regular season to play with the club for playoffs, not 100% sure though.
Is there? I don't believe he is allowed to due to his US national development contract or whatever, but there are 15 year old callups who play in the playoffs after no games in the regular season, right?
I know next to nothing about the Junior Leagues and Portland in that matter, I've just gotten into them but with Joe Morrow on their team I've taken a liking and if they get a potential #1 pick on their D as well I struggle to see anyone stopping them next year.
Great news for Portland, and hopefully good for Jones as well. Portland will probably lose a few of its key players this summer though - Morrow, Bartschi, Ross, Wrenn, Gabriel, Noebels, Rutkowski and Carruth. Maybe they get lucky and a couple of them return as OAs though.
