CHL Import Draft

I mentioned Stepan Novotny signing with Kelowna earlier this week after being taken in the CHL Import Draft, but there were two other NCAA names of interest in the Import Draft.

Luca Cunti, who spent most of the past year petitioning the NCAA to be ruled eligible to play for St. Cloud, was selected by Rimouski Oceanic.

Cunti's Chicago Steel teammate Simon Olsson was also selected by a QMJHL team. He had a verbal commitment to Alaska, though his commitment surprised a lot of people since he wasn't academically eligible to play college hockey, and he never showed much interest in trying to become academically eligible.

Obviously the NCAA does considering they have skewed rules to protect against losing players to the CHL.
