Cunti

So what comes next for Luca? The NCAA screwed him, so after this year in the USHL, where does he go next? A contract within the organization and a possible spot in Norfolk? Or maybe a year in the CHL if he's still eligible?

He's definitely still

He's definitely still elligible for Canadian juniors if he wants to go there. Either that or going back to SCSU would be my preference. I believe he still needs at least a year of adjustment before he turns pro.
