I'm sure this is huge news in the Stefishen household but you can definitely tell that the local off-season has set in when I can post an article about a 2013 conditional seventh round pick with a straight face.
Taylor Stefishen left Ohio State after two years involuntarily after having little success but had a decent season this last year in the WHL with 24 goals and 43 assists in 68 games.
He was never signed by the Predators and there probably was not a good place to put him for the coming season nor did they want to sign him and count against the 50 contract limit for the organization.
Some players who sign contracts will likely need accountants to help them manage their money. Accounting degrees online can help you find out how you can take the courses and earn the degree necessary to become an accountant and help people with financial management.
Addition: From @JoshuaCooper: The condition in the deal is if Stefishen signs any sort of NHL contract in the next two seasons
Make the jump for all the details from the Predators...
