Actually more and more hockey playing Europeans, including goalies, are taking the NCAA route, foregoing the financial benefits they receive from the CHL teams.
Likewise the younger ones are taking the prep school, private school route to North American hockey.
Also there is no cap on the number of European players an NCAA hockey program may have. Similarly no cap on prep or private school players.
Then you have the USHL option which is also growing in popularity and impact.
