Sean Farrell about to agree with the CH?
The jewel of the Montreal Canadiens Sean Farrell could have played his last university game, Friday in Bridgeport. And it can't be said that his season with Harvard University ended on a high note.
Farrell and the Crimson suffered a humiliating 8-1 loss to the Ohio State University Buckeyes in the NCAA regional semifinals.
The other hope of the CH in action in this duel, goalkeeper Jakob Dobes, had much busier games between the Buckeyes posts. He signed the victory by making 21 parades. Ohio State's next opponent will be the winner of the duel between the Merrimack University Warriors and the Quinnipiac University Bobcats.

Farrell has also set the table for his team's only goal, scored by John Farinacci on the massive attack.
Harvard also lost in the final of the ECAC conference last week against Colgate University.
This means that, like Jordan Harris last season, Farrell could sign his entry contract and help the Habs in the last games of the regular schedule.
The athlete from 21, a fourth-round pick in 2020, would be a big addition to the CH offense. Recognized for his offensive instincts and his aggressiveness, the 5'9″ and 175 lb winger is one of 10 finalists for the Hobey-Baker Trophy.
He scored 20 goals and 53 points in 34 games this season, his second at Harvard. He could also decide to continue his university career if he wishes.
General manager Kent Hughes had commented on the file during his appearance on The Athletic's podcast “Got Yer' Back”, in beginning of the week.
“Once his season is over, we will definitely call him and explore. We would love to have him with us, but he still has another year of schooling. He can choose to do it, it's up to him. We'll have those conversations with him and his agent.”
