Then you have the USHL option which is also growing in popularity and impact.
That's definitely interesting to hear. I've thought all along that there should be no limit to the number of 'imports' in the CHL. I'd also like to see more players from 'non-traditional' countries getting a chance to play against higher competition. Be it in Junior B, or Division II or III schools.
The limit of goalies is disappointing.
