I think we were all aware of that. Well, I was... but was just playing around thinking it'd be fun. Thanks for peeing on my Wheaties, though ;)

I'm not a lip reader, but I'm pretty sure Brock Boeser was telling Austin Matthews in the medal lineup. "You really need to come to North Dakota next year."

he is playing pro hockey :)

Is that the same league Brady Murray went to after his Sophomore year? Didn't work for him, maybe it will work for Matthews.

Same league.

What do you mean didn't work for Brady Murray?

completely different situations. Brady went after his sophomore season as he was not a likely NHL prospect and Switzerland was changing their league definition of an import player. Despite having dual USA/Canada citizenship a team signing Brady did not have to count him as an import player since he was born to his Canadian father and mother while his father coached in Switzerland.  He played 8 seasons in the Swiss A league.

 

Mathews I believe tried to accelerate his education to be able to have the options of playing major juniors or going the college route. He was completely dominant in the 18 and under worlds last year but still ineligible foe the NHL draft due to his age so he chose to play and get paid in Switzerland this season and he will likely play for whatever team drafts him in the NHL next season.

I thought Murray did that to improve his NHL stock value. Anyway, I don't think most young hockey players aspire to play in Europe, it is usually a fall-back position for them. That is what I meant by "it didn't work out for him".

One is using it as their development league (college hockey).

One was using it as their pro job (NHL).

I got a chance to watch about the first half of the 2nd period...that game had some pace to it (at least while I was watching).

The Russian captain just lost his !@#$. Got a penalty after the goal and then smashed his stick on the penalty box and got sent to the locker room. No pp though. "Just" a misconduct.
