What do most Swedish junior players think about the opportunities to play college hockey in the US and receive scholarships. It seems that this is a very good league that produces some excellent talent but there does not seem to be many swedish players playing in the US college system. The only reason I can think of is that either the colleges do not recruit the swedes or the players dont know of it as an option, or perhaps both. It seems like a better option for players to go to college and develope rather than signing with a SEL team and playing on the 4th line. What are your thoughts?
