The NTDP won't be releasing Brandon Maxwell to Windsor of the OHL. It's a pretty complicated issue, but I can understand why USA Hockey wouldn't release him.
Also, Colin Jacobs signed with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL. He had previously committed to the NTDP for next season. I'm not super-surprised by this move. Given that he's represented by CAA(the same people that represent The Jonas Brothers!), I could see them wanting to push whatever is perceived to be the faster track, rather than toiling in relative anonymity in Ann Arbor. Jacobs definitely has a lot of potential, but a very long ways to go before reaching it. Hopefully he can develop that in Seattle.
