Not to mention if the hockey thing doesn't work out, there are many scholarships to be had south of the border as well.

Timely.

Also, anyone using hockey as a reason to "get a scholarship" south of the border is foolish. Most Canadian institutions are top notch and offer tuition levels far far below their U.S. counterparts.

Other than the Big10, I can't think of a conference that would give a hockey scholarship and would provide you with a quality education on par with Canadian schools. I know playing hockey can help with your resume to get into the Ivy league but you're still going to cough up 100k.
