Still, it's hard to believe they randomly chose Fritsche's name out of a hat. His brother, Danny, went the OHL route before being signed by the Columbus Blue Jackets, and after an outstanding freshmen year at Ohio State, perhaps Tom views the OHL as the fastest route to the pros. The fact that Kitchener drafted him is also bad news for Buckeye fans because they have a reputation of being able to talk guys out of college committments. Fritsche led the Buckeyes in scoring last year as a freshmen and looked to be one of the cornerstone pieces to the Buckeyes CCHA title run next year. Whether or not he makes it back to Columbus next year will be a story to keep an eye on over the summer.
Not a huge deal, but you should probably quote that and cite it if you're going to cut and paste that much.
