2013 goaltender signee Eamon McAdam is ranked as the seventh-best North American goalie by the NHL Central Scouting Services. Thank You Terry goes into more detail, but it looks as though McAdam will step on campus as an NHL draft pick in the fall.
Know what this means in terms of how long he is going to play at PSU? Does anyone know if it is common for college hockey players to leave early for the NHL? Thanks!
in 2-3 years we will win the Frozen 4
PENN STATE FOREVER
Very common for kids to leave early. Very few will leave after one year, but some will start to move after year two. The majority will hang around for three years and then leave if drafting organization deems they are ready.
Depends on how highly regarded he is, and who drafts him. Some GMs prefer to develop their guys in the farm, some prefer to leave them in college, saving a pro contract, since those are limited.
Hopefully my Sharks grab him, then we've probably got him in Blue and White for at least three years, probably all four.
And Hack's gonna win 2-4 Heismans.
This is exactly right. Some organizations prefer their prospects to develop in the Canadian Junior Leagues and will push them in that direction.
The answers already provided pretty much cover it all, one thing I'd add is goalies tend to take longer to develop than skaters, which could see a keeper stay an extra year and fine-tune some aspects before going pro.
