Creativity brings up an excellent point. NCAA was 100% a bluff if he's simply not willing to go to the Maritimes, going to USA is a worse option if his reason is now he doesn't want to take a distance coarse to learn in french.
High school in Quebec is is finished at grade 11. Then the cegep program starts - which can be a 2 year college preparatory program or a 3 year technical program. So if one were to take the 2 year college prep route at cegep - your university program is 3 years as opposed to 4 years. Long story short - he needs one more year of Quebec high school - not 2.

it would/could be a wasted year of development for him to play another year of MD AAA. Not easy leaving home at 16...to play hockey in a strange city. pretty sure the kid speaks no english. most kids from the regions in quebec do not speak any english. just like the maritimers and americans speak no french.
