He forfeits his eligiblity to play NCAA hockey if he signs a professional contract; he doesn't forego his right to a college education. Stepan and McDonagh both signed contracts with the Rangers, and have been taking summer classes at Wisconsin to finish their degrees. Kreider will do the same thing if he chooses to turn pro. He needs 4 classes to graduate I believe. That's a pretty light summer class load.

Kreider will get a signing bonus when he joins the Rangers, and they simply can't cut him and not pay his 3 year ELC if he were to get that badly injured. Kid is all but guaranteed a couple million dollars just by signing his name on the dotted line.
