USA Hockey brought Nick Ebert, from Waterloo in the USHL, to last year's camp and offered him knowing he was most likely headed to the OHL. I think a lot of people expect DeAngelo to be OHL bound since he's a late '95. Unless he accelerates his schooling to enter BU (where he's committed) early, he'd be spending 4 years in the USHL before his NHL draft. For a high-end prospect like Anthony, that makes zero sense. I'd expect him in the OHL next season, although I could see a slim chance he'd join the NTDP for 2 years and then play one in the OHL a la Pat Kane.
No idea on Erne. I'd suspect he's happy with Indiana and said "thanks but no thanks" to the invite. He's QMJHL territory so he's a lot less likely to "bolt" to the CHL.
Thanks for the info on the two.
