I'm shocked there's no thread on this. Is it filled with nothing but major junior this year or something?

Junior related, but not World Juniors

USA Hockey told them last week "no, you can't form a Tier II Junior league". Looks like the USPHL told Colorado Springs what they thought of that.

I take it the "tuition-free" angle is supposed to scare the big Eastern prep schools?

I don't think that's it. Though the 9,000 junior teams on the East Coast have put a big dent on secondary school hockey. It's also made scouting/recruiting a nightmare for coaches.

I see where UND's Brock Boeser just had "minor" wrist surgery, but it will prevent him from playing until sometime in January.

Been a while since college kids made canadas team. Much tougher now for NCAA to land blue chip Canadian recruits, especially from Ontario.

No. USHL and NAHL don't require players to pay fees to play on their team(NAHL charges a small amount for room and board). Every other junior league in the US does. This would be the first league based on the east coast to not charge fees(though it will end up being youth teams below them that end up paying higher fees).

I see. Thanks.

I thought it was because the moniker of "tArrogance" should be moved... I seem to recall when both the US and Canada tried to severely limit players to their respective "farms", it didn't work out too well for either.

From my own name recognition, Canada doesn't look all that impressive.

22 with NCAA college ties.
Finland, Sweden, and Canada (Jost and Fabbro on final roster), and ?Latvia all have NCAA affiliations on team.

Final roster for USA: http://teamusa.usahockey.com/page/show/2886684-2017-wjc-u-s-national-junior-team-roster

Good amount of college talent in there.

Still need one more defenseman cut, and maybe one more goalie cut as well.

Yeesh, tough group with US, Canada, and Russia together. Not to mention Slovakia. Latvia, something tells me this may not be too good of a tournament...

A lot of hand-wringing about Debrincat being cut.

Shouldn't be.
Didn't do much at any camp and hasn't really produced outside the OHL.
Most of the *****ing I've seen is from Hawk fans.
