USCHO.com:Brian Deutsch writes an article about Kyle Okposo, why he returned to school, and what's ahead.

* Playing at hockey's highest level might have been the easy choice, but for Okposo, it wasn't the right one.

"I've always wanted to play here (at the University) and one year is way too short," he said.

"Kyle is going to make the right choice off the ice and he's going to make the right choice on the ice," Lucia said. "He's everything you want in someone who's going to represent the University of Minnesota hockey team."
