Wow, what a terrible decision.

There's no way we sign him right now, and he only has like 20 games of CHL eligibility as an overage player, at a point where all teams pretty much have their overage slots sorted. So probably has no options there.

As a guy who is a fringe-y college player right now, he won't even be able to compete in the ECHL. Headed for some rung lower than that.

Absolute idiocy. He might not have been playing much right now, but would have had 4 years at a great college program to develop, with an NHL team overseeing the process. Now he's cast himself into the hockey wilderness and is a total write-off. Career suicide.

Disappointing. Doesn't speak much for his character, either.
