Go to your corporate HR rep and ask what a Quinnipac degree can do for you.
This doesn't even take into account getting a degree in basket weaving or athletic taping strategies as majors.
The CHL is your best shot at making hockey a career. The NCAA is the more conservative attempt at the same thing.
Uhh. Not sure if serious. There's some very good educations being given out by hockey playing schools. I'd think the onus would be on the individual players to get the most out of their free educations, not to call out the quality of schools.
