Yes, Noesen and Puempel are 99.98% playing their final years in Junior.

When a player is elite like both Puempel and Noesen are, it's generally thought of as being better for development if they move on as quickly as possible. While the 67s fan in me cried for Ryan Martindale to be sent back to Ottawa instead of the ECHL, I understand why NHL teams decide to send their players to the minor leagues as opposed to the juniors.
