Even if Hartford made the playoffs,Stepan was not playing for them because he was concussed. The same can be said for Kreider who is still hurt. Jim Cerny tweeted last week about Kreider's jaw and it was assumed Cerny didn't realize Kreider had returned before BC was knocked out. CT might not make the playoffs again this season.
Columbus signed Atkinson and Chicago signed Hayes but their AHL teams are not making the playoffs. I saw Hayes tweet his followers/friends about coming back to Boston next week. They left school for two weeks only to return to Boston. Do they go back to school to finish out the semester?Did they forfeit their scholarship for the remainder of the school year?Do the players pay a pro-rated amount for their classes?
Can a player on NCAA scholarship sign a pro contract and finish out the semester?Example. Chris Kreider signs an ELC today with the Rangers which will begin in 11-12 but remains in school to finish his school year on scholarship. Is that allowed?
Sounded like Werek was getting a pedicure yesterday.
I'm pretty sure just a few NHL games is enough to pay any tuition/scholarship penalties they may have incurred.
