  1. Does this mean he could play for RKF next year if he doesn’t make the Hawks or is he returned to junior?

  2. I think because he turns 20 before the end of the year (October) he is eligible to play in the AHL. Not 100% sure though – someone please confirm.

  3. He is eligible for Rockford. His contact will count towards the 50 contract limit. But it can slide as long as he doesn’t play with the hawks next year.
