Riley Nash to skip senior season at Cornell?


A recent article has new Hurricanes prospect Riley Nash talking on plans of his future after he attends the summer prospects camp this week.  Hopefully Pete Friesen won't run the kid into the ground while the team brass does the sale-job on leaving Cornell.

From the Kamloops Daily News:

Nash is confident that when the time comes, he’ll be able to play with the big boys.

“I can definitely play with top-end guys,” Nash says of his progress over his three seasons at Cornell, which is located in Ithaca, N.Y. “I’m a two-way player so I feel I can take what they do best away and then counter-punch that with my offensive ability. I’m bigger, stronger . . . I don’t get pushed around nearly as much and as easy.”

Nash leaves Kamloops on Tuesday, headed for Raleigh, N.C., and the Hurricanes’ summer camp, where he will get a chance to “see their guys and see what they have in store.”

Then, he says, “I’ll probably decide after that . . . if I’ll head there or go back to school.”

It is a rather huge decision.

“A Cornell degree is a pretty powerful thing in today’s work force,” says Nash, who is studying applied economics and management. “Jobs not being all that abundant, it means that much more. It’s not something you just give up easily.”

If he chooses to return to school, though, he’ll have to go it alone. Perhaps the main reason that Nash chose to attend Cornell was the presence of Brendon, a defenceman who signed an NHL deal with the Montreal Canadiens after completing his senior year.
