Source? Because what I have read says the exact opposite:

"For one, only about 32 per cent of CHL players are tapping into the scholarship program."


"Players may pursue a pro career in the lower minor leagues the first year after major junior, but it's often an either/or proposition. And for those who sign a contract in the NHL, AHL or top European leagues, they are ineligible for scholarship funds no matter the length of their career."
