Going From College Hockey to the NHL

From George Bazos—a player agent with Sports Professional Management that represents college-turned-pro players including Martin St. Louis, Craig Conroy and others—an article in College Hockey News:

I have been representing professional hockey players for over 17 years, the majority of whom have come from the collegiate ranks. I have represented players that have stayed in college for four years, as well as some who have chosen to turn professional before their collegiate eligibility has expired. Every player’s situation is unique, and a number of factors must be considered when determining the best time for a particular player to become a professional.
