    Boston College has too many defensemen in front of him in their depth chart

    The article speculates that he wants to go to a place where he can get more playing time.

    Not really surprising, last year he was incredibly sheltered and with McCoshen and Santini coming this year, he was only going to get pushed further down the depth chart.

    Shawinigan owns his CHL rights, but I doubt they would want him as he would be an overager. I don't believe anyone has his USHL rights.

    I doubt he would want to play in Wheeling. Couldn't he just transfer to another University ?

    Still thought it was a really good guess to take in the 7th round. Sucks that he went to one of the best hockey universities, where you really have to be a top player to play. Especially on D. Perfect place for him would have been the Q. I'm on Twitter now....trying to make Shawinigan Colin's new home...;)

    That's most likely what he will do, but he won't be eligible to play this season due to NCAA transfer rules.

    He should play at UVM. They need help on D and it is a pretty decent hockey school. Plus I could go down and see him play :handclap:

    They can trade him... The overager crop in the Q this year is really bad.

    He will get a full ride elsewhere, its not that he doesn't want to play hockey anymore and is just quitting, quite the opposite actually. He wants to get more playing time so he is going somewhere else where he can show his skills and not ride the pine.

    I figured this would happen, I assume he's going to transfer to another school, he'll have to sit out this entire season.

    I'll have to look it up, but I believe he had 3 schools that he was looking to play for before opting for BC but I can't remember what the other 2 schools were. For some reason I think Minnesota was one school but I could be wrong. Before that he was slated for Yale but they wanted him to hold off (so he would have joined them this year as a Freshman) but he wanted to play right away so he de-commited from Yale. Must have been a very tough decision to drop out of one of the best schools in the world.

    He could play in the ECHL if he wanted but that would mean his NCAA career is over. At this point I would assume he will just transfer to another school. It's the smart move as he was not going to get playing time at BC.

    Ha! Yeah, but who cares about Colin Sullivan, anyway? Less than a nothing prospect.

    Is sitting out another year really a good move for him at this point? He already stayed in prep school one year too long.

    Getting a full scholarship is his best move, imo. He likely won't amount to anything in pro hockey, it's in his best interest to put his education in front of hockey right now.

    That's just my opinion.

    I agree with this, but at the same time continuing down the NCAA road and sitting out another season lowers whatever small chance he already had of getting a pro contract. And if he's going to sit out, it might as well be at a school with the academic reputation of BC.

    Of course he could still go down the CHL road and continue his studies while likely increasing his pro potential (assuming he has the talent in the first place). I don't blame him for not going down this road when he's getting a full ride at otherwise expensive American schools, but at this point it's clear not to expect much from him.

    Should've just stayed and studied. Not exactly a hockey player here.
