Back To School: Friday's notes

Sometimes the morning hockey notes end up concentrated around a particular topic, and today, we're hitting on college hockey. One Nashville Predators prospect is heading back to school for another year, while another draftee welcomes back his star linemate, as they look forward to playing on a big stage at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Meanwhile, the acrimony between college hockey and Canadian junior continues over a lawsuit filed against the University of Michigan's student newspaper...

All that and more after the jump!
