“I had a couple. One was education. I knew if I left early, it would be a lot harder to get my degree here from BC. I knew three years here would be a lot better than two years and I’d get a lot more classes done. And my brother is coming in next year. We both committed here to play at Boston College together. I really wanted to get a chance to play with him. That was another really big factor of me staying. The last [reason] was the way we ended the year, it was pretty upsetting we didn’t get to go back to the Frozen Four. I really wanted to get another chance to do that.”
Boston College hockey forward Johnny Gaudreau, on why he decided to return to school next year rather than join the Calgary Flames. A full story on his decision will be in tomorrow’s issue of Heights Sports.
