The big news on Monday was that the NCAA opened the door to Canadian schools joining the NCAA. It's certainly a step in the right direction, but we're still probably four or five steps away from seeing Canadian schools playing college teams and in a major conference.

Now is the time of year when some of the top NAHL players start committing to colleges. The most recent is Wichita's Adam Cardwell, who leads the league in scoring. Cardwell committed to--is it Wednesday again already?--Alaska.
