Although speculated for awhile now and not much of a surprise this is still an interesting move to me for a few reasons. 1) He has obviously played pro after turning 21, so how many years left of eligibility does he have? 2) With Yeomans in his 3rd year and Fullerton only in his 2nd I not only wonder how that situation will play out the next two seasons but how each of them feel about this since one of them (and maybe both) will probably see significantly less playing time...unless, of course, one of those two aren't going to be around for their full 5 years. Either way I guess adding another impact player certainly isn't going to hurt and things like this usually have a way of sorting themselves out.

What senior team is he playing for this season?

How many years eligibility will he have? 1, 1 1/2, or 2?

For those interested, today's Gleaner said Houle will be playing for the Blacks Harbour Silverkings of the SNBSHL this upcoming season....
