Besides that you have many others on the Negotiation Committee that spent years in top Colleges... Darche is a McGill graduate that won the CIS outstanding Student athlete prize. Brad Boyes won the CHL Scholastic Player of the Year Award. I don't think their intellectual skills should be called into question.
When I went to university I shared classes with the varsity hockey players. Believe me when I say most of them needed math classes and help with even the most routine educational matters.

A few (Maybe 2-3 per season) did take their studies seriously (And I had the highest respect for them because of it) but most just wanted to play hockey and let their buddies take notes and do all the heavy lifting.
