Not really crazy. The WHL drafts 14 year olds and the other leagues are drafting15 year olds.
So not that strange in comparison. The colleges are competing for the same top end kids as major junior and want to start that relationship as soon as they can. Makes perfect sense to me. Another analogy is with the advisors pursuing kids as early as 12 and 13. This is the reality of hockey and other major sports today.
