Tolvanen does not pass Boston College admissions standards, signs to play in KHL

NBC Sports has reported that Nashville Predators’ first-round pick Eeli Tolvanen, who was slated to attend Boston College this fall, will instead forgo his NCAA eligibility and has signed to play for Jokerit in the KHL.

Reportedly, Tolvanen did not meet BC’s admission requirements.

Tolvanen played for the USHL’s Sioux City Musketeers the past two seasons and was selected 30th overall on June 23 at the United Center in Chicago.
