Jaxon Camp - Guelph
Must've been a tough get for the Guelph coaching staff
Laframboise leaves lakehead to ECHL another good scorer with eligibility left leaves ♂️
G - Griffen Outhouse to UNB
Originally committed to Alberta after finishing up his WHL career, he spent last year between the AHL/ECHL.
I assume he will have to redshirt a year and then will take Parenteau’s spot, who is entering his 4th season. It’s a bit of a weird one though as he is probably good enough to be “the guy”, but I don’t see him supplanting Harvey...unless they think Harvey won’t stick around too long??
Ryan Valentini leaves Guelph
Looks like his final appearance in the ECHL last season was on or around Jan 31. It's not likely that UNB would burn a year of his eligibility for a few weeks plus playoffs, but if they chose to, he'd certainly be eligible before the season ended.
By playing pro until then, that doesn’t cost him a year of eligibility, does it? He turned 22 in March.
IIRC, any pro activity after Dec 31 in the year the athlete turns 21 would cost him a year of eligibility. But I'm not sure on that - can anyone confirm or deny that?
Griffen will have burn year since he played past deadline of Jan 10th
Surprised he didn’t go back to Alberta...seems they could use him.
Perhaps he made his decision while the program was cancelled.
Perhaps. I believe his sister is going to UPEI to play hockey as well.
Griffen was born on March 13th, 1998. He turned 21 on March 13th, 2019.
An athlete can play professional in North America, or in Europe, and maintain their full 5-year eligibility provided participation takes place prior to (before) December 31 of the year the athlete turns 21. In this case, if he played professional starting January 1st, 2020 he would be hit with i) a year of eligibility and ii) the 365 days of rest.
Griffon started the season in the ECHL after being cut from the Moose. After six games, he was recalled by the Moose, but return to the ECHL on December 31st. He subsequently played 10 more games up to January 25th when he left at the beginning of the 3rd period, versus the Florida Everblades, with an apparent lower body injury.
Having played professional in January 2020, he loses one-year of eligibility and with his last game on January 25th, the 365-days of rest means he is not eligible until January 25th, 2021.
Unless the team has some injuries, I would see him practicing and starting for the 21-22 season as a replacement for Rylan Parenteau.
Alberta adds the following graduates from the WHL:
RW Tyler Preziuso . A fast winger who had 21 and 26 goals in his last 2 seasons in the WHL. He had 26-25-51/+19 in 62 GP last season with Medicine Hat and Vancouver
C Ryan Hughes. A quick left shot C, Hughes had 30 and 26 goals his last 2 seasons in the WHL. He had 25-44-69/+17 in 56 GP last season with Saskatoon and Kamloops
LD Dylan Plouffe. A puck-moving left shot D who had 9-35-44/+18 in 63 GP with Vancouver/MH last season.
LD Ethan Sakowich a steady two-way D who had 11-17-28/-10 in 63 GP with rebuilding Red Deer last season.
After red-shirting last season after playing a full season in the AHL Matt Fonteyne is a big addition for the Golden Bears. He had 35-53-88/+27 in 72 GP with defensive-minded Everett in 17-18.
The Golden Bears return 11 FWDS and 5 D (including their top pairing) from last season's team.
A 21 skater roster seems pretty light compared to previous seasons.
I would think that could be due to a lot of guys going pro, given the uncertainty of CIS hockey.
Should be okay for half a season.
Besides, the UofA is chock full of ex Junior A guys who could make it as walk-ons.
Peyton Reeves - Toronto
Outhouse announced by UNB...
Reds Add Goaltender Outhouse
How is he eligible? He played four(4) seasons of NCAA.
Cameron Pound to SMU
100% not eligible. He also played 5 games in the ECHL at the end of the season.
The only possibility would be if he had a season-ending injury in his Junior year and they (the NCAA) gave him an extra year of eligibility ...
2017-18: Saw action in nine games before inquiring a season ending injury. I was unable to find anything on a free year.
The NCAA can permit a "Medical Redshirt" to an athlete who "loses the majority of a season to injury."
