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.
Well, if he finishes school in Québec after next season, he doesn't need to do any type of distance learning.
He could just head to prep school or the USHL like plenty of other kids to play at a higher level and get any additional credits required to meet NCAA requirements.

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.
Thanks, I wasn't exactly sure how the school system worked in Québec.
