    Professional try out.

    Amerks could release him whenever they want, or could sign him to a regular contract

    He is an ECHLer.
    This is the league below the AHL, which is below the NHL. The Rochester Americans are an AHL team and were interested in trying him so they gave him a chance to prove himself.

    ECHL isn't a junior team. Junior teams in North America are only those from OHL, WHL and QMJHL. People in ECHL can be 21 years old but can also be 42 years old
