I've actually always wondered if players do as well. Not just the ones that came from the NCAA, but ones from junior as well. For instance, someone like Claude Giroux. I don't know what he did after HS while he was playing in the Q, but I do see a few Sudbury Wolves player at Laurentian during the season. It would be interesting to know how many actually continue on after they've gone pro, and see if they still receive their degree. Or even if they start while they turn pro. They would obviously have to study part-time, but that's something I've always wondered.
