NHL Kings, AHL Manchester have had ECHL Ontario as (one of) their ECHL affiliate(s) since the franchise started playing.
Oh, fair enough. I thought I was told that once about guys on Trenton could only go up to the Devils AHL Affiliate, I guess it would make sense theoretically anyway. However, Trenton nowhere near gets crippled by the callup bug like Reading and Elmira seem to.

That would be true if they're on an AHL or NHL SPC.

(Now, there is the little AHL-CBA caveat that a (NHL-contracted) player may be assigned to an AHL team even if he's not under contract to the parent affiliate, but can't go back to the other team for the rest of the season. NHL Sharks have had a couple of instances where with signing college kids, post trade deadline, and return from injury have had a surplus of one position and assigned them to another AHL franchise for the duration. Usually players with expiring contracts.)

You're right. I shouldn't have painted it as an absolute and the Trenton, Reading, and Ontario situations slipped my mind while I was typing that.
