No he actually is not. Are you dumb? He played in the AHL this year, meaning he's too old for the CHL.
Unless you are talking about Kassian playing in the OHL as an overager like Archibald did and Friesen is doing right now. But that isn't being "young" enough to play in the OHL, but being given an exception to play despite being TOO OLD TO PLAY IN THE LEAGUE.
Kassian was too old to play juniors this season.
Yes, he actually is.
Am I dumb? What are you 7 years old....or completely mentally handicapped? I'm going with the latter. Just because a guy played in the AHL this year doesn't mean that he's too old to play in the CHL, you jackass. Get your facts straight before you start spewing out your misinformed garbage. There are many guys playing the AHL who are still eligible to play in the CHL. In fact Kevin Connaughton could have played another year with the Giants a few years ago but the Canucks figured that he had developed as much as he could at the CHL level, so they had him play in the AHL.
What part of playing as a 20 year old don't you understand? Yes, of course I was talking about Kassian playing as an overager. If you play hockey in the CHL and are considered a 20 year old, you are considered an overager, you IDIOT. And what are you talking about as an exception. Every player is eligible to play as a 20 year old overage player. But they either have to be assigned to play there by their NHL team because they are better served trying to develop at that level, usually to get stronger rather than having to play against grown men every night, or they have to be wanted by their parent junior team as a guy they'd like to use as one of their 20 year olds. If you're too old to play in the league, you wouldn't be allowed to play in the league, so what in the f*@k
are you talking about? In the WHL you are allowed to have three 20 year olds on your roster. The CHL is for players 16-20 years old. Look it up jackass, instead of posting about something that you apparently know nothing about. Because Kassian has a 91 year birthdate, he was ABSOLUTELY fine and able to play in the OHL this year. But, because the Sabres thought that he'd be better off developing in the AHL against much better competition, that's where he played.
"An exception to play despite being TOO OLD TO PLAY IN THE LEAGUE"???????? Hilarious. Get your facts straight dude.
Kassian was not too old to play in the OHL>Figure it out!
