Question concerning a player's eligibility for the AHL (which has probably been answered thousand's of times over). Does a player still have to be 20 years old to play in the AHL or have they lowered it? Cody Bass recently signed a tryout contract with Binghamton, but doesn't turn 20 in over a year. Does this mean, he can play in the AHL for the playoffs this year, but must return to junior in 06-07? Thanks.
