Entry level contracts

I have a couple of questions for the more knowledgeable.

1. are entry level contracts guaranteed? Since all entry level contracts for player 19-20 year olds are for three years, are the minor league numbers guaranteed? I was thinking this could pose a problem for teams with larger numbers of players under contract.

2. Is there such thing as a minor league contract for AHLers or are they all on some type of two way NHL contract? I know all entry level contacts are two way contracts now, but is there a separate type of contract for fringe players to help fill out AHL rosters?

Yes, they're guaranteed. Teams are limited to 50 players under contract (not including players in juniors, including players in the minors).
