I agree that was the goal, injuries change things though. Not sure his timeline to return but at this point it doesn’t seem in the best interest of his development to rush to college.

I don’t know if he would admit it or not but Ben Gordon is a pretty good example of a guy that would have been much better off with one extra year of USHL hockey back when he was facing that situation. He ended up with a solid college career but it was pretty clear to a lot of people that he was going to struggle that first year… and I believe he would have been an even more productive player over the course of his college career had he waited one more year. Maybe he can relate some of that to the young guys that they think might fit the bill. :?:
