    I looked up the history of the draft and, if Wikipedia is to be believed, 21 year old North Americas have never been draft eligible. According to the article any amateur player under 20 was originally eligible. In 1979 the rules were change to included professional players and in 1980 the rules were changed to limit the draft to players between the ages of 18 and 20 and non-North American players over 20.

    Yes, but they are the exceptions, not the rule. Looking at players ages on Hockey Reference I see four 18 year olds, fifteen 19 year olds, and thirty-five 20-year olds who have played in the NHL this season. Out of 848 skaters and 88 goalies that is just 6.4% (0.47% for 18 year olds; 1.8% for 19 year olds; 4.1% for 20 year olds) of skaters and 5.8% (0.43% for 18 year olds; 1.6% for 19 year olds; 3.7% for 20 year olds) of all players. Those numbers include all players who played even a single game in the NHL this season, including Brock Boeser, so I expect the number of 18 year olds to increase by one tonight.

    Apparently there was some "incident" that had occurred. I don't know if it was something minor like DUI or what (I'm sure someone on the Maine thread can tell you), but they played the "character" card against him.

    EDIT: OK, so I don't always go through the entire thread and read ALL the posts before I respond...

    I think we can still blame it on Chucky No-Goals.

    Elliotte Friedman on NHL Network talking about early departures and saying that McAvoy likely to leave now that Colin White has made a decision. Not sure his reasoning that those are related, but he seemed fairly certain.

    McAvoy's gone. I'm holding out home that Hickey decides to stay for his Senior year. I feel that's the most important "stay" right now.

    I hope he stays, but with what we have returning and who is coming in, I think we will still be all set on D.

    JFK is the most important "stay" in my book. If we lose Keller, Greenway, and JFK, I will have concerns about our offense next year just as I had this season.

    I wouldn't be shocked if Hickey returns. Ditto with JFK, although I think he's a higher flight risk.

    I think Greenway should return for 1 more year, especially given his inconsistent play following the WJCs, but I think he's likely to go and is also the most physically ready.

    hope as many come back as possible, but there wasn't a lot of improvement individually.

    jfk went from 30 pts last year to 33 this season.
    greenway 26 to 31.
    bobo 12 goals to 14.
    cloonan 14pts to 6.

    incoming (for now...)

    Shane Bowers-LC 10/27/2016 2017 Waterloo (USHL) 6' 179 7/30/1999
    Kasper Kotkasalo-LD 7/25/2016 2017 Sioux Falls (USHL) 6'2 190 11/18/1998
    Ty Amonte-RW 1/29/2016 2017 Penticton (BCHL) 5'11 185 1/11/1998
    Brady Tkachuk-LW 5/10/2015 2017 USNDP U18 (USHL) 5'9 155 9/16/1999
    Logan Cockerill-RW 3/14/2015 2017 USNDP U18 (USHL) 5'8 150 3/3/1999
    David Farrance-LD 9/13/2014 2017 USNDP U18 (USHL) 5'11 170 6/23/1999
    Henry Crone-LC 4/8/2014 2017 Fargo (USHL) 5'8 160 2/19/1998
    Cameron Crotty-RD 10/31/2016 2017 or 2018 Brockville (CJHL) 6'2 188 5/5/1999

    8 freshmen
    6 would be seniors
    8 would be sophomores (unless jake leaves after being drafted high by someone who wants him elsewhere)
    6 juniors (without charlie.... couple more pending leaving of course)

    depth has been a problem.
    sure hope GQ doesn't send anyone to quinnipiac

    kids who have left are not really a concern for next season.

    Unlike last year, when 2nd assists on the Power Play were not counted.

    First it's his lack of goals, now it's that his assists aren't really that good either. This obsession is getting a little ridiculous.

    What year did BU lose to Minnesota in the NCAAs when they were at campus sites? Was it 86 or 87?
