How many players per birth year in Mass play in college? How many play division 1 vs division 3? How many more that could play college decide to play lousy minor league hockey?
I was going to answer until I read the ignorant last part about "lousy minor league hockey".
OP here…I meant guys that choose to play in minor league hockey and lose their eligibility for college. Not disparaging that choice. College shouldn’t be a prerequisite for a successful life.
There are more than 4 birth years playing college hoxkey. Probably more like 6 birth years. I think it’s probably 15 a year at D1. Probably 25 combined at d2 and d3.
