Actually they hold his rights until 2016. He wasn't drafted until after his freshman year in 2012. They hold his rights for 4 years.

As a team they have reached the Frozen Four in 2 of his 3 seasons, which is off the charts impressive for a small school like Union, but I don't see them winning the National Championship with teams like BC and Minnesota in the mix. They don't have the pedigree or strength of regular season schedule to go against these guys when the trophy is on the line.

Other than that if he wants to stay at Union, that's great he'll actually finish his education, unlike a lot of guys...this is something admirable.
I agree. He's too good for that league. I thought he was too good for that league at the end of last year, but like most prospects he stayed for his 3rd season. He's only going to develop bad habits if he goes back for another year. He needs to challenge himself. No disrespect to Union, they have a hell of a program, but he needs to start playing with guys that are closer to his skill level if he's going to take that next step.
