Re: Looks like Malcolm Gladwell was right in Outliers

My son is older and is a very late December player who has multiple standing offers in Tier I Jr. Hockey. It was just the lumps he took early on to get there when he was always playing up a year basically. But hey, thanks for worrying about my kid. It's very kind of you.

I'm sure he does have many invites to combines and camps.

Re: Looks like Malcolm Gladwell was right in Outliers

He's been to camps, yes.
