The Globe and Mail/David Ebner BCHL and U.S. colleges create an alternate route to the NHL

 

 


In the past, it was rare to see a big name emerge from the Junior A-NCAA route. The likes of Brett Hull and Paul Kariya were exceptions. But the number of players in the NHL coming from the college ranks, the preferred route for many American players, has climbed significantly. Collegiate alumni account for about 30 per cent of NHL players, up from around 20 per cent in the early 2000s.
