He did not refuse, it was known that he would report to any team. The problem was that teams had scouted the top players quadruple the amount of times they had seen Day. Plus they were unaware if he would even get the status. Even before he was awarded exceptional status, Dylan Strome, Travis Konecny and Matt Spencer were already factored in as the most dominant players in this class. Plus the teams had already made deals with these players. He is an exceptional skater, but most scouts felt Spencer was the better all around defensemen.
