When I posted last night, Whyno's piece on Boyd hadn't been published yet, but here it is link
A reminder: NCAA sem-finals later today
4:30 pm Ferris State vs Union on ESPNU
8 pm Minnesota (Boyd, Larson) vs Boston College (Wey) on ESPN2
Finals are on Saturday, April 7, at 7pm on ESPN2
Interesting to see Union College come on to be a power house in College Hockey. Many moons ago I attended a College in what they call the Tri-Capital area (Albany, Schenectady and Troy) and the only college that I recall that had a hockey program in that area at the time was RPI, whereas everyone else were schools primarily with Division III sports teams none of which were ice hockey.
Then again living in Omaha, Nebraska in the early 90's UNO did not have a hockey program either. The only ice hockey in town was the USHL Omaha Lancers who played at Aksarben. Surprising to see how quickly that school's program was elevated.
Interesting news on NHL live Rangers 1st round pick is playing in the frozen four and if his team loses tonight rangers are expect to sign him to his entry level contract and play him sat and in the playoffs. And if his team wins tongiht and advances to the finals, the NHL regular season will have ended and he would not be albe to recieve a signing bonus or be paid for the playoffs. So the College games tonight could impact the caps playoffs if they make it.
I wonder how much about the pay is accurate. Players don't get paid salary during the playoffs, but there are playoff bonuses and I don't see why he wouldn't get his share? Also, not sure why he wouldn't be able to collect a signing bonus. By the way, it's Chris Kreider who you are referring to in your post. As to base salary, it's true there would be no salary to collect.
Of course, as with many late season signings, there is a lot of confusion about Kreider; Friedman had to revise his 30 thoughts this week because the original had some mis-information about the situation.
2 of the 3 Caps prospects playing in the CHL had their seasons end tonight. Galiev and Saint John beat Sam Carrier and Baie Comeau, so Galiev is still playing in the playoffs.
Dman draft pick, Samuel Carrier: Unsigned at this time. Caps hold his rights until June 1, 2012. Time to keep an eye on whether he goes to Hershey on an ATO and whether he signs an ELC with the Caps.
Goalie Brandon Anderson is under contract to the Caps; if the Caps and Bears want, he can report to Hershey since his junior season is over. Anderson was with Hershey for a short time last year after his season ended. This season, he left the Wheat Kings for a time taking personal leave. Returned for the playoffs, so who knows what’s going on. He actually played tonight for the first time since 2/21; coming in for the starter Boes when Brandon was down 4-0 to Edmonton.
video interview with BC Ntl Champs – Coach York, Patrick Wey, and Pat Mullane (attended Caps development camp last summer)
I expected Wey would stay at BC for his senior season, definitely sounds like that's his intent at this time based on this interview. Obviously, things can change (and this interview wouldn't be a place to announce he was leaving.)
The team he was rumored to be signing with (see post on 3/30), but it's interesting it's a 4 year contract and the note at the end about hiring an intl goaltending coach, thanks. This had a bit more detail, too:
