    Not a Division I player...But, D-III Oswego State's Eric Selleck has signed a two-way entry level contract with the Florida Panthers and will be assigned to the Rochester Americans, assuming the Panthers stay there next season.

    Laugh while you still can - those guys start low on the totem pole, but in 20 years, they'll be out-earning every other undergrad major at Cornell...

    How many college hockey players who were awarded and collected college scholarships dropped out this year? I don't know. Do You? If you do, please share the source of your information. All others need not respond.

    Leaving school while in good academic standing and making progress toward your degree in order to take a shot at a dream you've had since you were a very young kid is not "dropping out." It's a smart decision, and one that I would encourage my children to make if they ever have that chance.

    If you'll notice from my post on your thread, my objections to your proposal (which, by the way, you never responded too) have nothing to do with statistics over graduation. I could care less what the percentage of Hockey players who graduate with degrees are. My post was simply noting that a collegiate player had signed a professional deal (which was the whole point of the thread).

    If you want to make this into a argument about your thread, go back there and argue about it.

    About 20 have left early so far this year:

    (Refernce Link below -- look for the asterisk that indicates underclassmen)
    http://www.insidecollegehockey.com/7...gnees_0910.htm

    All in all a small number, and most of them will be making double to 20 times more than their classmates in the first year out of school. And they can all go back and finish their degrees.

    These guys have their whole lives to be college students, but they don't have their whole lives to be pro hockey players. I don't blame any of them for taking the money.

    The debate/argument is over and the thread reverts to pro signing news....

    Ohio State Soph. D-man Matt Bartkowski signs with Boston. His rights were traded from FLA to BOS at the March trading deadline.

    http://bruins.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=527488

    That is the third player the Buckeyes have lost this offseason (Dalpe, Bishop).
    The number of players leaving early has now surpassed 25.
