Can't NCAA players sign an ATO and still return to the NCAA?

No, because the AHL is a pro league. They would lose their NCAA eligibility if they play in a pro league.

yeah as soon as they sign a contract of any sort or try out for a professional team they automatically void their eligibility.

They even have to pay their own way to training camp, if they choose to attend.

NCAA is crooked...terrible, terrible...crazy knuckleheaded terrible.

This is true.

NCAA rules are designed to keep university football and basketball players in college rather than trying to make the jump to the pros. Its only when a kid knows he'll make the team does he bolt for the NFL or NBA. Neither of these leagues has a "minor league system" in any real sense like the NHL does.

The NCAA should account for this and let these kids go play for AHL affiliates once their college seasons are over. The experience will only help the school programs in the long run as the majority of those players will probably return to school the next year anyway.

they cannot attend training camp, since that is considered a professional tryout. the can only attend the summer prospects camp by paying their own way. if they attend training camp their status is void, even if they pay their own way.

the thing is, the NCAA system is designed for amateur athletes to face one another. as soon as someone is paid, they become professional, and whats to stop other professionals from coming into the program; if you let in one, you have to let them all in. the rules are there for a reason.

As much as I agree with you about the amateur status of NCAA college players, the NCAA is hypocritical about it. They allow USHL players to play, but not CHL players. I understand that CHL players get a stipend so they can eat, but what is the status of USHL players? They're all from far away places (not the same town as where the team plays) Do they not receive room and board and meals?

I think the NCAA is making a ton of money off of these players and picking and choosing which players will be included in their pyramid scam.

That being said, I'm sure there's a counter argument. I'd just like to see the CHL re-classified as an amateur league (because it is!) by the NCAA.

So is there any actual news on this kid or is this just a ncaa discussion?

he's playing for team USA in the WJC.

Other than that, there is only news on him on the weekends, since that's the only time they play.

Schroeder is the Rabbit. Pat White is the Turtle that always says "Slow and Steady wins the race".

wasn't White drafted in 06? By now he should be the pts leader. There is no race.

no he was drafted in 2007 and is 19 months older then Schroeder. White is a Junior and Schroeder is a Sophomore, so it's not like they are that far apart in age.

But mainly it was a joke, but the fact is because of the nature of the situation, people will compare their point totals.
