I heard an interview with Dumoulin's advisor. He represents other NCAA kids. Dumoulin rejected $3M last spring from Carolina. The advisor Gary Prohlman went to the NCAA for permission to buy an insurance policy for Dumoulin in case of injury. The NCAA said No but they would buy the insurance policy and charge 11% interest. They held their breath all season worrying about a serious injury. The NHL contracts are insured. Look at Dan Blackburn. He collected some nice money after his career ending injury. Stefan Cherneski decided to take the insurance money rather than attempt a long shot comeback from his terrible knee injury. Prohlman also reps the Maine player who left school a few weeks ago to sign with Philly. He chose Philly over 3 other finalists because they promised him a spot on the big team next season. That kid had 1 semester of school remaining before he graduates. He had more credits than the average junior in college.
