The schedule "grind" of the CHL is completely overstated and in most cases a fallacy. Take a look at how close most of the arenas are. Especially the OHL.

The NCAA schedule is just as stressful. The student athlete lives an adult life. Not a pampered teenage life.

And between tournaments, regular schedule, and playoffs the difference between the NCAA schedule and the CHL schedule is negligable in different cases.

Thomas was in the OHL from 16 yr to 19 yr.

Whereas Kristo was in the NCAA from 18 yr to 22 yr.

Thomas played that entire span against children. Kristo played that entire span against young adults.
