Top students? Top players? Where do they go from here?

Sure they all "can" go to college but the reality of NAHL is that it isn't the gateway to college hockey, and the colleges that these players, for the most part, will attend are non-scholarship schools. Also, these players were playing in a league where fees are paid for housing etc. and to think their parents were stocking up cash for college for those three years is in most cases not reality.

Looking at the list it would be surprising if many could get into many D3 schools like the mini-ivys or the private liberal arts schools. Again, this is college being discussed not a pure hockey situation like they have lived in for two or three years.

Wondering how many of the parents of these players truly pushed education in high school? How many thought they would be playing college hockey and not paying for it? How many thought their years of AAA, and paid juniors would pay off in college money based on hockey?

Reality is that these players may attend college but they also in all reality will be faced with totally different choices of schools and degrees than their counterparts who truly set education as their "goal" not only for playing hockey but for life.
