Circumventing CHL-AHL rule

Do you think if a player like Rielly signed in Europe with an AHL/NHL outclause they could just sign a contract with the leafs and then go to the ahl?

Basically..

1) Canadian CHL player gets drafted by NHL team - wants to go the AHL
2) Signs in Europe with AHL/NHL outclause
3) Signs deal with drafted team and leafs European team to go to the AHL

Would this work?

No, what matters is the league a player is drafted out of not the most recent league they played in

He needs to be drafted out of any league EXCEPT the CHL

So basically he would need to quit on his CHL team before the season is over, join a team in Europe or the US and then get drafted

Then the NHL team could decide to assign him to the AHL

Regardless of the process, you'd run into the issue that Yakupov had. The CHL team wouldn't release the player and the IIHF wouldn't approve the transfer. Don't get me wrong, I like Rielly a lot, but he barely played last year. For his sake when the lockout ends (assuming this year), I hope the Leafs let him finish the year in Moose Jaw, hopefully play World Juniors, and then go from there.
