I dont think that puts it in stone. The Morins and Bogosians are a recent examples, and the Lanes (one in Brampton, one at NTDP) are another. It helps, but I dont think its a lock.

The kid has a ton of work to do. If all goes well, he could be a Tyler Myers, or if not, a Devereaux Heshmatpour. Hes a late birth month. He may honor his 2 years at the NTDP, and see how he progresses. If it looks like he wont be a high end draft pick, I think the chances he goes to college are better. You have to think if a WHL team used a first on him, they must have gotten the feel there was at least some interest.
