Article of the Month -
Pro Signings

When the season ends for most of us, it signals the beginning of exam time. In men's NCAA hockey, it is the beginning of the pro signing season.

NHL draft picks will be given offers from the team they were drafted by. Other players are free agents and pro teams will bid for their services.

What this means to you is that there will be roster spots that become available. It is important to follow these signings during your research. A roster spot that you thought was gone may suddenly become available. By being aware of these opportunities, you can be the first to capitalize.

In women's NCAA hockey, pay special attention to rosters when there is an International Tournament on the horizon. This is especially important now with the Olympics in Sochi in 2014. National players are leaving their college teams early to join their National Teams to prepare for the upcoming tourney.

Check out our pro signings page to keep up to date on your opportunities!
