    Does anyone know of any examples where a player has contested in court NCAA rules which disqualify a player from a US scholarship because of participation in a Major Junior hockey game??? With the ruling made in favour of Maurice Clarett and his NFL draft eligibility, doesn't that open the door for other athletes to contest such rules as this?

    As far as I know there has been no such challenge to the ruling (although there is at least ONE player that I can think of that could possibly make such a case).

    As for the Clarett ruling, it wouldn't have any effect on the NHL nor NCAA hockey, because the NHL doesn't have such a rule in place. Clarett challenged the NFL in allowing him to enter the NFL draft as an underclassman in college. Underclassmen in NCAA hockey are drafted each year so it wouldn't be applicable. What WOULD be applicable would be the whole (confusing) issue of the rules that govern opting into the draft.
