I saw in the St. Paul Pioneer Press a little story about Vince Pedrie, a 23 year old sophomore defenseman from Rochester. He played two years of high school hockey at Apple Valley and then four years in the United States Hockey League before coming to Penn State.
Not sure when his birthday is. But he'll be either 25 or 26 years old when he is a senior. Is this really right and I wonder how many other 25 year old players are playing against 18 year old freshman in college.
I would think that the clock needs to start ticking at your senior class in high school as to admissions in college if you want to play college hockey.
