In most junior leagues its 20 and under. Canadian major juniors allow 4 overagers per team I believe. This year I think that means they had to have been born in 91. This year if you check junior rosters there are very few 91's and mostly 92, 93, 94 and a few 95's. Most kids leaving high school can ...

My question is how many players is the National Development actually sending to the NHL and I mean the big show, not the AHL. It seems that a lot of the players coming out of there are not having as much success at the college level (Travis Boyd comes to mind). Quick to throw Boyd (who technically ...

Re: WHA

Does this list include WHA list from 72-79? Important as they were paid good wages. Regarding goalies: Canadian goalies leave home at 14 and are playing double the games during HS years 15-18 All MN goalies must go to juniors after high school to get more games and exposure as NO college or NHL sco...

However it will be interesting to see if Shuldt plays for tonka and if glover plays for BSM. This could impact if horton plays up front or not.

I reluctantly support Ben's choice if that is truly what he wants but he was hardly a dominating player in the elite league this fall. As a ten year old He was, IMO, the best player in the state but hasn't produced at nearly the same rate in the years since. The competition will be better but if I'...

Now more and more Mn hs aged kids are going to juniors to speed up their development and are being encouraged by college coaches and pro teams. 10-20 years ago hardly any player considered leaving hs, now I would say the elite players all look at that option.

I think it has to do with his grade. I remember Travis Boyd had the same problem, he was a freshman coming off an 8th grade year where he scored 45 points and didn't get a look...he played Blades that fall as well.

mngopherfan, Just a suggestion, but the tactful way to post inside information of that sort is to say "I was informed that it was a coaching decision."
