Pateryn going for med school

Greg Pateryn, a 6-foot-3, 216-pounder, had two goals and 13 assists and a plus-15 rating in his fourth and final year. Pateryn, whose rights were acquired from Toronto in the Mikhail Grabovski deal, has his sights set on medical school, but has said that he’s interested in seeing how far he can go in hockey. It’s common for teams to give a player whose college career is over a chance to get a head start on his career in the spring, but that may not be feasible if Michigan advances to the Frozen Four in early April and the Hamilton Bulldogs don’t make the playoffs in the American Hockey League.

You know how tough it is to have a legitimate NHL career? After 5-6 years, if he's still in the AHL, why the hell would he waste his time making 60-70,000 a year when he has the opportunity to go to med school.

Dumb, misleading title. Trying to cause a stir when there's nothing to talk about.

Heart stopped for a min there, Paetyrn might not be a top prospect but I'd be pissed if he did that.

In my opinion a career in medicine is far more desirable than a career in hockey. Given the choice between treating concussions for $250,000/year for 40 years or receiving concussions for $1,000,000/year for 10 years, I pick the former.

That said, it is absolutely shocking what a beast this person is if he has that choice. How does he maintain grades good enough for medical school if he has to invest the time necessary to be a decent NCAA player? Incredible.

1. NCAA schools that do Division I hockey are, on average, grading easier than never before
2. If he was a McGill Redman (that way he could remain close to Hab-land), then Pateryn would be in med school already

Your explanations are fair, but I'd still rate his position as an accomplishment. I know people who studied all the time, without lives of any sort and certainly nothing comparable to playing division 1 hockey, and still weren't close to getting into medical school. It's very competitive.

I'm a teaching assistant at Ohio State, a rival to UofM and thus a similar school, I'd be impressed with any student of mine who pulled an A- average and still had a real shot at a professional sports career.

One requires talent and time to play hockey and train your body and the other requires sleep deprivation while writing garbage useless papers on stupid subjects... or doing professors some favours if you have that option

Big difference either way.

While I like Pateryn with UM, I wonder if his skating will ever be quite good enough for the Habs. Komisarek is a pretty bad skater but he was better than Greg back in 02 etc with UM. But he does have tons of grit and plays very hard, is a rock in his own end.

Med school at UM is second to none as well. Though the thread is misleading.

Bennett, however...

Another loser bust!

Imagine that... choosing a career where you can save people's lives and be useful into your 70's... instead of hockey!

Doing all that while living with 4 other boys in a house by themselves.

In the context of Ohio State (or possibly UM) that would be impressive. But if Leblanc had an A- average had he remained in Harvard that would be more or less standard fare for that school.
