College Hockey Prospective “Grand Opening”
College Hockey PROSPECTive – “putting the prospect in college hockey recruiting and news”.
Wednesday’s the day! After much stress over how BAD I’ve been at the whole web design issue and after just as much stress over separating myself from my day job by a fair percent, I’m commencing full coverage on College Hockey Prospective (CHP) on Wednesday, February 1. I figure I’ll just work around all the web design issues I currently face and ignore the 50% cut in monthly income. There’s something to be said for doing what you love.
CHP will follow how players developmental careers progress and morph into professional NHL versions of their earlier forms. Last year in June ’11 at the NHL draft, 59 players in college hockey lineups or committed/considering college hockey were drafted by the 30 NHL teams over seven rounds. This week, CHP will start the release of the Top 60 College Hockey/NHL Draft Prospect Rankings in inverse order. CHP will be in Pittsburgh in late June to bring you live coverage of the NHL draft.
Similarly, tracking college recruits as they make their way to the NCAA Division 1 ranks will be a primary focus of the site. CHP will rank the Top 25 ’12 Recruiting Classes and detail those classes in weekly releases.
Anyone who encounters hockey players notices how down-to-earth and interesting those players are. CHP will regularly feature in-depth profile interviews with players who are still in the recruiting process and even a few of those who have made their way into the college ranks. We’ll let them tell you, in their own words, how and why they became prospects.
Plan to look for opinions on a wide range of college hockey topics from a base of guest columnists who will offer their “take’ on subjects of college hockey interest.
Finally, we’ll provide weekly updates of current NCAA recruiting in our Sunday feature, This Week in Recruiting.
Your interests are paramount. Someone you’d like to see interviewed or a topic you’d like covered?
We’ll always be open to ideas. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
