Most CHL players have to leave home and billet whereever they go. Generally (I believe) if you play for Moose Jaw (for instance) you're going to the same high school with your other teammates. You're taking similar classes, you're making the same roadtrips and there is tutoring involved. The CHL has a program to help pay players--who don't turn pro--for college afterwards. Canadian universities many of which have hockey programs recruit heavily from CHL teams. They do not have the severe restrictions towards CHL players that the NCAA has. That's happened with some Ranger draftees. Eric Hunter is one.
