The Rangers aren't pleased.
That's all I know. I will look for some headline to make it "confirmed with a link."
He didn't refuse to go the WHL. You have your facts wrong. He wants to maintain his college eligibility, therefore he is playing in the BCHL in 2011-2012 and going to Notre Dame in 2012-2013. I'm sure that the Rangers would have preferred that he plays in the WHL, but they are the ones who recommended the BCHL instead of the USHL. The Rangers didn't want him playing in the USHL.
