The status of the Kitchener Rangers forward was a popular topic during the team's post-season march.
His absence from the lineup had the rumour mill swirling.
Injured, unhappy and holding out for a trade were just some of the guesses that popped up around the Aud.
One of them was true.
Coaching contracts are up at the Aud but it sounds like everyone is expected to return next season.
The Rangers finished fourth overall in the OHL this past season with a record of 43-21-3-1.
