If he's graduating a year early, then I can't see him playing professional hockey at all this season considering the spring semester at most colleges finishes in May.
Yes. From what I understand he'll be graduating a year early.

Personally, I'm not so sure he needs a glimpse into what he'll be getting into. He's already played at the WC's against men, and his strength / conditioning won't really be an issue. What he needs is time to adjust to the pace of play and continue to hone his skills.

However, it's really up to him, so we'll see.
