Boston Bruins prospect cut from his team due to personal issues

Making it to the NHL is no easy feat. Even for the few extremely talented kids who even make it to the draft, there's still a long way to go before a player secures an NHL job. For Bruins' prospect Cole Spicer, some personal issues will now stand in the way of his potential hockey career.

According to the Bruins Bender Podcast, Spicer has now been cut from his team at University of Minnesota-Duluth and will miss the rest of the NCAA season.

Letting his grades slip to a point where he'd be removed from the team isn't a positive sentiment to Spicer's work ethic, which would hurt his NHL chances more than a season-long suspension would. Now out of his NCAA team, it's unknown where Spicer will play next season.

Spicer was selected in the fourth round of last year's draft by the Bruins after playing the previous year with University of Minnesota-Duluth. In the last two seasons he's played a total of 49 games, recording only 8 goals and 15 points.
