Re: Roster Cuts This week

My sons in his first year of Juniors and if he's not competing or doesn't produce I would expect him to be cut. Jr Hockey isn't Youth or Prep Hockey. These kids know their job and if they can't do then they get skipped over. Makes sense to me. I'd hate to see my kid not playing but its up to him now.

Thought the same thing as the OP but you have to realize that even D3 schools want a year or 2 of Juniors now. Kid has to really want it in order to compete for a spot anywhere at this point.
It's ridiculous in my opinion, one of my sons is looking to play ACHA after high school, he called the coach and the coach practically told him unless he played 1-2 years of juniors he needs to be a complete standout or he won't take him.

Cmon. What school ??

Acha coaches have been contacting my kid since his sophomore year of d3 high school telling him to skip juniors and come play club college right away.

Bunch of his ex teammates are playing club right out of high school. And. They were okay hockey players in high school.

I believe this if it's a high level ACHA D1 school, even some upper end ACHA D2. Those teams are club in name only. They operate like a varsity college sport but just don't have the designation in the athletic department.

There is a wide range in ACHA from being a fully budgeted club team that operates like a varsity program to totally student run where a bunch of guys who played hockey throw a team together.

And just to remind folks how good even the best ACHA Club Hockey teams are, arguably one of the top D1 Club Teams recently is UNLV, they had an exhibition vs Denver (NCAA D1), just this past weekend. They stopped counting the score at 10-0, and remember, they are playing everyone on the D1 roster in this game from Denver

What's your point? Do you think players confuse D1 Hockey for Club Hockey? C'mon man! NLV Uni's are Fire! They practice 3 times a week and only lost to the #1 Ranked NCAA Division 1 Team by 10. Not bad for a bunch of kids not good enough to make a college roster.

Re: Roster Cuts This week

URI club team better than many lower level d1 hockey schools

Miami Ohio and Arizona State both lost to Denver 7-1 last year, which is obviously better than 10-0 but not far off, so God forbid a club hockey team loses to the #1 ranked NCAA team with 12 NHL draft picks.

Re: Roster Cuts This week

I said they stopped counting at 10-0, it was more.

Re: Roster Cuts This week

Son cut this week, team wont release his rights? Does this make sense? He has other teams that want him. Is there a way out of this?

Re: Roster Cuts This week

If the other teams really want him they could work out a trade.

When you are cut after the season begins like this for an NCDC team did they offer your son a spot on the Premier team with the sti****tion that now you have to pay or did they say nothing leaving your son in limbo? Why would they want to retain the rights to a player they cut and they did not offer a spot on their Premier team where they'd have to pay. I get trying to force you into a pay to play situation (for them) but if that's not the case, why leave the player in total limbo.

Wouldn't them releasing the player mean they release his rights too??

My son was waived from a USHL team and once he cleared waivers they didn't have his rights anymore. Seems silly for the to be able to release a player and keep his rights!
