Just out of curiosity, come playoff time what are the rules on call ups. Just wondering if we would be able depending on our situation and how well Bo and Hunter perform this year would we be able bring them up? Are the rules any different because its the playoffs as appose to regular season?

Thanks again

P.S. Its a beautiful time to be a Canucks fan in Edmonton right now. haaaaaaha

Basically, if I recall correctly, the salary cap goes out the window after the regular season is over. There are no salary or roster limits.

Typically, once a junior player's playoffs are over, if the club that holds their rights is still in the playoffs, you will see them called up to be Black Aces. That way they are available if there are any playoff injuries. They get to hang out and practice with all the injured guys and healthy scratches, but they typically don't see much action.

Once a junior player is sent back, they can't be called up again until their season is completely over*. So London being the host of the Memorial Cup means he likely won't be done in time for a call up. Medicine Hat would have to make the Memorial Cup but could go deeper into the playoffs since they're 3rd in the East for the WHL right now.

*With the exception of an emergency call up.

I think you are partly correct? Pretty sure we (the big club) can call up either player at any time during the regular season, but once the player plays ten games with the big club then they can't go back to junior and would burn a year of their entry level deal.

The part about a player "can't be called up again until their season is over" refer's to the player being lent to the AHL (minor league). That can't happen until the players junior team has been eliminated from play-offs. But the big club can call up the player at any time.

No, that's completely wrong. elvis is entirely correct.

Once sent to junior their season must be over.

Incorrect on both statements.

The 10 games has nothing to do with whether or not they can be sent down, it only determines if they burn a year of their ELC or not. They can be sent down at 4 games or 40 whether they've burned a year or not.

The CHL/NHL agreement states that junior players that don't stick with their NHL team and are sent down must go to junior, not the AHL, and are not able to be called up once sent down until their junior season is over. The only exception is the emergency recall where an NHL team has less than the required roster to ice a full team, and can't call up a player from the AHL because that would force the AHL team to have less than the required roster. It rarely happens though.
