  1. This leaving early after 1 season or 2 is getting really out of hand. They should give back the scholarships and pay for the time they spent. College hockey has to give a time frame of which they can leave or else like is happening now they all will leave so early and many of these players end up in the ahl or echl or other divisions. So why not penalize them also for leaving this early no matter the financial situation or not.

    • Mark, I feel your pain, but I respectfully disagree. Here’s a good example why: Last year Jack Eichel played at Boston University. People paid handsomely to watch him play, both at home and on the road and on TV. Then he jumped to the NHL after one year. Why make him pay back the scholarship? He generated a ton of revenue for the school, he helped get the best players into the program pipeline, he helped BU win several championships (which helps bring in even more alumni money into the program). Look at it this way, it is far better to have the Jack Eichel’s of the world playing in the D-1 college ranks for one year, then not at all. I am sure he could have opted for Major Junior but stayed close to home. If a college kid leaves school early for the ECHL, maybe he isn’t getting the best advice, or he is not doing well academically.
