Still, with how hard it is to cut it in the NHL I wouldn't say no to 4 good years of hockey, and a free degree. Even a player as decorated in the NCAA as Hagelin wanted a contingency plan.

Yeah, unless I was extremely talented the way Brian Leetch was, I would always pick a school like Harvard or Yale. It doesn't set you back in terms of hockey in any significant way, but it gives you Ivy League education where if you fail to make the NHL, your career is still set.
