There's a steady stream of announcements and shocked reactions to DI hockey players signing with pro teams before their college eligibility has expired. More often than not the immediate destination of these players is not given, nor the terms of their contract. In order for college hockey fans to consider who's the culprit in these cases - the players, the NCAA, the NHL, or Junior Hockey [and how best to reduce early exits] more information is needed in these announcements.
Pass the nachos.

"When in doubt I whip it out
I got me a rock 'n' roll band
It's a free-for-all"
They competition is who we thought they were.
Too bad there's not a list somewhere that shows what players have left and who they signed with ...

Is it Portnoy's Complaint where a guy jerks off into his baseball glove?
The details of a contract are not immediately released in most cases. Once they become public, it is not difficult to find the information. It's already been stated that Jooris signed an entry level contract (so you have at least an idea about what the numbers will look like) and will play for the Flames' affiliate in Penticton.
Now that you have that information, what is it you plan on doing with it in way of determining who the "competition" is?
Just a heads up, the issue of early departures and the decision by players to leave college for minor league hockey is one that is not new and that has been discussed in relation to various other topics for well over a decade.
