Franco is the first hockey player to be offered a professional contract since the secretary of defense endorsed a policy in November making it possible for exceptionally talented athletes who have graduated from a military service academy to pursue employment as professional sports athletes following graduation. Once approved, he would be permitted to delay his commissioning and subsequent service obligation to pursue employment as professional sports athletes.
