Just reading this article (some interesting quotes), i have a point of confusion. Based on the old CBA rules regarding ELC, he is 23 and thus, would have to sign a 2 year ELC. But in this article it states a 3 year contract. Then i checked capgeek and its a one year contract. Probably makes minimal difference to most, but i'm hoping someone could verify which is correct.

This following quote from his coach is pretty much what all LSSU fans said about him. Can't complain, the CCHA refs drove him into our arms.

“When you get a five in our league you also get a 10 with it to and he had a couple check from behinds and a couple hit to the heads. To be honest, our league kind of ran him out of college hockey as every time he hit a guy it was a penalty because he is so big.”
Nice to see he is already friends with Price.
