There will be a mass exodus from boarding schools in New England next year. In the past 2 weeks we have heard from 20 families looking for other options (most ever during this time) as they don't want to send their kids back to a campus where they cant ever leave, have to wear a mask for all waking hours of the day and could possibly not have a hockey season again. In some cases head coaches were not there, assistant coaches were not there. There is not 1 hockey player in MA/CT/RI Prep that got better this year from on campus sessions.
With the Canadian boarder still in question, spots will be extremely limited here in USA but with that said, the competition of all the leagues might be the best since the early 90's!
My kid’s prep school already has 1 Canadian on the roster with 2 Montreal commits (Juniors) on the way.
Leaving Prep next year..shhhh..dont tell, my son is playing in the PHL starting in April and hopefully will open some doors but there is no way he's going back to that prison.
