An Import Player is defined as a player whose parent(s) do not reside in Canada or the United States as of January 11 preceding that year’s CHL Import Draft. If a CHL club has no Import Players, they are eligible to draft two Import Players, if they have one import, they are allowed to draft one, and if they have two Import Players they are not eligible to participate in the draft.
