Troy Mattila To Wait On College

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, potential CC recruit Troy Mattila has decided to reject a partial scholarship offer from the school and play a year of juniors. Apparently he is hoping a year in juniors will help him attain a larger scholarship down the road, particularly important considering that Colorado College tuition is now over $40,000 a year. Mattila is 18 and can afford to spend a year playing juniors; he was selected 20th overall in the recent USHL draft, by the Des Moines Buccaneers. It's likely he'll end up playing NCAA hockey next year - hopefully for the Tigers.

On a brighter note, the same article mentions that season ticket sales for Tiger games are up for next season. Assistant AD Scott Lowenberg claims CC is "well above" 6,000 season ticket holders at this point. Not great news for those looking for tickets, but excellent news for a program already among the top in average attendance.
