I was pointing out that most d-men turn pro before 22. Keep in mind I wasn't arguing that it's old for a d-men just not exactly young to be turning pro.
My point was being they turn pro at 20 because they have no choice but to. CHL players have to sign a deal within 2 years compared to an NCAA player who have to in 4 years.

If he signed with the Canes when they wanted him to he would have been playing in the AHL at 20 right with the CHL players who got signed & had no eligibility in their league anymore.
