It's a good thing I put that "?" after the "Sonny Milano to OHL?" headline earlier this morning. The saga continues:
CBJ first rounder Sonny Milano at Lake Placid, "I'm going to BC"— Corey Pronman (@coreypronman) August 4, 2014
Pronman covers NHL prospects for ESPN and has posted photographic evidence of himself in Lake Placid so the quote is probably legit.
Adam Kimelman of NHL.com adds:
Sonny Milano confirms he will attend Boston College in the fall. Says no truth to reports of him going to Plymouth— Adam Kimelman (@NHLAdamK) August 4, 2014
Of course, it's wise to heed the words of Chris Peters of CBS Sports' Eye on Hockey and not get too exuberant just yet:
It's that time of year. As always, until a contract is signed with CHL team or player is on campus and playing, anything can happen.— Chris Peters (@chrismpeters) August 4, 2014
As recently as two weeks ago, Milano told a reporter he remained firm in his commitment to Boston College, but the rumors kept percolating, and if earlier reports were to be believed, Milano was still on the fence going into World Junior camp about what he wanted to do. So I doubt this will be the last chapter of the story. But it's the most recent chapter, and it's good news - for now.
