Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse for Colorado College, another top-notch recruit has left CC dangling in the wind. Colten St. Clair, a 2010 recruit, has pulled his commitment from Colorado College and has committed to play his college hockey at the University of North Dakota instead.
Colorado College has seen star goaltender Richard Bachman & defenseman Brian Connelly leave school early for professional hockey this offseason. Then prized recruit John Moore, spurned his CC commitment to jump at an offer from the Kitchener Rangers. Last week we learned that assistant coach Mike Guentzel was leaving CC for a head coaching gig in the USHL.
You have to wonder if any of these seemingly unrelated events are connected.
