CBA affect on AHL

When the current CBA expires, how will it affect minor league players reassigned by NHL teams?

For example, if a player plays the majority of the season in the NHL, and then is sent down to the minors near the end of the season, do they join the lockout? If that is so, then you'd think anyone who is a member of the NHLPA would also join the lockout, meaning all minor league players with NHL experience.

Maybe someone remembers how this was dealt with in 1994-95.

Seems to me, last time--when the lockout began a transaction freeze was put in place by the league. So if NHLPA is still locked out near the end of the season all the players going to AHL would already be there. And if lockout continues for any length of time players will be looking for a place to play. Last time players wanted to be assigned to a minor league team, some signed with independent teams in the IHL, or signed to play in Europe. Younger players could go back to juniors. If they could obtain insurance they would want to play. Teams would also prevent those with significant contracts from playing in certain cases.
