Not unless something has changed. It was announced at his signing that he would be spending this season in Sweden.

Interesting fact looking at Gallant's EP page. He had a 0 point season in the Q, played 32 games, 133 PIMs but no goals or assists. That's like half a season, kind of remarkable imo and he's battled his way to an AHL contract, not bad.

Simpson is a local boy for me here he is a great story.

Cut from Midget AAA and played Highschool for a while, undrafted to the Q from Midget so went to Junior A, Signed by Q team, undrafted obviously to NHL and not really a look even. Played 4 years for UNB now signed to an AHL deal.

I would not be surprised if he eventually makes the NHL that's just the way his career has gone. Great kid cant wait to see what he can do.

Stockton has signed 25 year old forward Adam Brady out of Bemidji State University according to:
https://www.facebook.com/39373766815...1915463338439/


6'0'' 194lbs forward that shoots left and had 34 points in 37 games last season
https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/101102/adam-brady

An inspiring story, he was in a horrific car accident that kept him from playing for 22 months and could have ended his hockey career.

Reminiscent of George Pelawa, who was from Bemidji (but would have attended the University of North Dakota).



Also, the last guy the Flames signed out of Bemidji State turned out pretty good for the team (assuming Otto was the last guy).

Are there any examples of University players signing at 24-25 years old that've gone on to prolonged NHL careers?

Placeholder until Wolf and Chechelev enter the pro ranks.

Parsons needs to play in the AHL this season.

All four Canadian-based teams may have to face off only against each other, LOL.

Manitoba Moose, Toronto Marlies, Belleville Senators and Laval Rocket.

Have to believe that only a limited number of teams will participate and NHL teams will be sharing. Can’t be too long a season either.

Looks like the Heat will be playing in Stockton.... without fans for the time being.

AHL Division alignment looks like this. Charlotte (FLA), Milwaukee (NSH), and Springfield (STL) have opted out.

Binghamton (NJD), Ontario (LAK) and San Diego (ANA) will all play games out of their NHL team's practice facility.

Providence (BOS) will play ouf of Marlborough, MA.

Frank Seravalli @frank_seravalli
AHL schedule is not finalized yet, but will feature varying schedule lengths by division. Minimum is 24 games played per team.

Pacific division is aiming for 38-42 GP. Other divisions will range from high of 40 GP down to 24 GP.

Frank Seravalli
@frank_seravalli
It's primarily an NHL-CHL issue, but if major junior hockey does not start up again and NHL/CHL allow it, junior-aged players WILL be eligible to play in the AHL this season. Must have been 18 years old by Sept. 15.

(No draft eligible players will be eligible for AHL.)
