Brad Thiessen: Updated

According to Heisenberg's site, Brad Thiessen has committed to Northeastern University, selecting the Huskies over Cornell and North Dakota. It seems that although Thiessen favored North Dakota what he really wanted was the opportunity to play next year. With Jordan Parise apparently returning to the Sioux for his final year, and with sophomore Philippe Lamoureaux (USHL's Goalie of the Year in 2004) next in line, it appears Thiessen didn't like the odds. Given what Thiessen claims was said to him regarding David McKee's early departure, Cornell should have been an extremely attractive opportunity. This continues to be a curious story...
