I'm pretty positive that Toews at the very least was a 15 year old 10th grader considering he went to North Dakota as a young 17 year old and guys like Okposo, Esposito, Etem or even Jordy Murray were either in 9th or 10th grade for sure when they played at 15. The statement is wrong regardless of intention.
It's certainly a nice accomplishment but I just don't see the need to fabricate facts to force a Crosby comparison on Noel. Let him be judged on his own abilities.
