Best Answer

This question is difficult to answer as the AHL is the main development league for the NHL. While some gifted players come right out of junior, college or Europe and step right into the NHL, the vast majority of NHL players have played in the AHL at some point for varying amounts of time until they have developed their skills. There is, obviously, no rule about how many players can come from the minor league. NHL teams recall their players as they see a need.

If the player is under NHL contract but playing ahl what do they make?

It depends on the type of contract they have. A two-way contract stipulates the amount the player would make playing in the NHL, and a different amount if they were playing in the AHL. So a player might make $525,000 in the NHL but only $65,000 if hes laying in the AHL. A one-way contract however only has a single salary. So no if he's making $545,000 in teh NHL and is sent to the AHL his salary would still be $525,000
