All kids do more than just play hockey until they reach major junior or college...
Then again, how many play several sports well enough to given scholarships by Div I colleges for both/all of the sports and further, how many of those types then pick hockey over football/baseball (most common combinations)???
It definitely plays a role when comparing a kid who could have been a starting QB for a Div I football program to kids whose main devotion was to ice hockey, something that was definitely the case for Bjugstad, being the son of an ex-NHLer who played right there in Minnesota.
