Article looking at the short time limit that players have to use their school scholarship money that they get from playing in the CHL. Often talked about here in relation to NCAA scholarships, so I thought people might be interested. I hope at the very least, the policies change so that these kids get some school paid for. If the extra pub this issue gets pushes a couple more kids to College hockey, so much the better.
So those hockey fans out there, the CHL/NHL Top Prospects game is about to start on NHL Network.
The game is Team Don Cherry vs Team Bobby Orr
Some key guys playing on Team Cherry are Nathan MacKinnon (Halifax-QMJHL), Jonathan Drouin (Halifax-QMJHL), Jordan Subban (Belleville- OHL)
Key guys on Team Orr are Seth Jones (Portland-WHL), Max Domi (London-OHL).
Edit: 1-0 Team Orr Seth Jones with an assisit.
Edit #2: Another goal for Team Orr 2-0 on a goal from Laurent Dauphin (Chicoutimi-QMJHL)
Edit: 3-0 Team Orr with a nice goal from Nic Petan (Portland-WHL)
I apoligize for my ignorance. I watched the Windsor Spitfires beat up on the Calagary Hitmen last night. Is the CHL (OHL) a "professional" league? That is, do these "kids" get paid to play even though most are (or will be) NHL draft picks? Is the CHL equivalant to the AHL? That said, the Spits have some really good players.
On a side note; I find it kind of interesting that a team named after a British WWII fighter has a moniker that resembles a P-40 Warhawk (American WWII fighter).
