Monday News

Christmas has come early for those who favor the college developmental path over that of the CHL, and it has come in the form of an unexpected quote from an unexpected source. Kamloops head coach Greg Hawgood, talking about his 14-year-old son, Logan, who wants to be a Boston University Terrier, is quoted in Sunday's Boston Globe as saying:
"Great by me. I want what's best for him, and a lot of people here think I'd want him to go the Canadian junior route. Well, you know, I don't think I'd want him to be a sixth or seventh defenseman in the Western League for three years, then go try to make it in the ECHL. That's a tough way to go. He's got good grades, and if he's lucky enough to go to a good college, that would be fantastic."
