He signed because he is going to the CHL. He wanted to go the OHL opposed to the NCAA. I am sure he got a nice 50ishk or so signing bonus. Also the OHL is one of the best junior development leagues in the world.

err wait

The 50k signing bonus is bigg money for a 19 year old.

Unrelated but my favorite part of the Florida trip is coming home on 75 and seeing the Cincy skyline, while trying to find WKRP on the radio dial (still haven't found it )

Also seems to be at that point that the southern talk dries up and people talk the same as I do. Apparently I have a funny accent once I go south of there.

He's looked very good at the U.S. WJC Evaluaton Camp. I think he'll surprise at the next level.

Those numbers aren't too bad considering he was a freshman who played limited minutes.

Nice try. He played 37 games and got 17 points. Adding his point totals from a year in the USHL to make his point totals higher classic leaf fan attempt at overvaluing their prospect.

I'm surprised it took this long for someone to catch that one. Too clever I guess.
