    I'm not sure I would have him delay college to play in Juniors. Although my son is a really good hockey player, the chances of him going pro is so small, I have to be a realist. I guess it depends on this upcoming season. If I see him tear it up at the Triple A level, maybe that will change my thoughts, but as of now, I'd love to see if he can just play in college out of HS.
    You have to start having some one film him NOW, for at least a year of highlights, than those films can go to some major prep-schools in mass, or such colleges like Colgate, UMASS, the schools will look at highlights and sometimes get a free skate with them. Understand a majority of the college hockey players today are Canadians kids and now they are starting to look at Euro kids. There first choice are kids from Minn, Maine & Boston prep high schools which major in hockey, LOL, good luck.

      This year I’ll get to video him as I won’t be coaching (at least I think I’m not) so I’ll get to video him. The great feature though is Live Barn which is in most arenas now.

        The problem you have to decide is which is more important, an education vs a possible hockey career. Than we can together decide what he's going to do.

                Friends and first responders have identified victim in early morning drowning at the Hamilton Harbour as former @NHL goalie Ray Emery. Ray played the @ottawasenators, @NHLBlackhawks, @AnaheimDucks and the @NHLFlyers. He was swimming with several friends & never surfaced #HamOnt https://t.co/QpD2tNwDzs

                    The rebuild of what's now called KeyArena will be transformative for Seattle sports, providing a home at Seattle Center for professional hockey, and, perhaps, pro basketball.

                      I guess if you want to keep up with the Jones now a days you must have the state of the art practice facility.

                            I was trying to figure out the other day why scoring is up so much in hockey in the last couple years? Can't quite figure it out. Is it the smaller goal equipment? Is it the new rules and they way refs call the game? Is it just because the players are just better now? Is it all the above?

                            I'm not sure but I can tell you this it is really nice to have goal scoring back!

                              I'll go with all of the above. I'll tell you what I don't miss is the fighting. As much as I use to love in when I was younger, I think it all changed for me after Brad Dalgarno had a run in with Joey Kocur.

                                I used to fight a ton when I played but I have to agree I'm like you. I don't miss it either. For me it was the Kyprios fight.
