    In fairness, his first year he was 16, a year younger than Natl dev u-17 team. Did fine
    Following year as a 17 year old had 41 points, very good, last year had 62 points, 3rd in league
    Could still play in league two more years

    Had a very good USHL carear, including first year. One of only a couple his age that year

    He was only 98 who played full year on team

    So someone tweeted yesterday that Fabbro's bio on Instagram (I think) no longer lists BU. Anyone know if we should be concerned?

    Whoever tweeted it is wrong, it's still there.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    Penguins named Scott Young Director of Player Development, reuniting him with Mike Sullivan.

    Candidates to fill his spot at BU (pure speculation):
    Mike Grier
    Joey Perriera
    Freddy Meyer
    Who else?

    Two names to remember in BU's search to replace Scott Young are fmr Michigan assistant Billy Powers and Toronto scout John Lilley, an alum

    Krys was injured Saturday but completed the game. Being shut down as a precaution. Hearing it's not serious.

    Five of six Terriers made the US team's first cut at the WJSS. Krys was shut down due to an injury, reportedly not serious. Oettinger was sharp in 8-2 win against Canada. Harper 1G, 2A. Farrance 2A.

    Cockerill has impressed, especially on forecheck and PK.

    Mike Morreale‏ @mikemorrealeNHL 5h5 hours ago
    Cockerill was a steal there (7th rd) Kirk, indeed
    Mike Morreale‏ @mikemorrealeNHL 3h3 hours ago
    To me, Oettinger is very similar to the way Martin Jones moves around the crease

    Slick goal and an assist for Harper in 7-5 win over Canada. Saw time on point on power play.

    Re: bu off-season - #1

    So now that most of the summer hockey is over, and there are less than 2 months before the first real game, a stab at roster, lines, etc. I'm not really concerned about LD/RD or C vs W, just putting them on the lines based on where I think their skill set belongs. I think I may be missing one transfer...

    F
    Harper-Greenway-Carpenter
    Tkachuk-Bowers-Crone
    Amonte-Melanson-Cloonan
    Cockerill-Curry-Olsson

    Phelps, Chabot, McDermott, Witkowski

    D
    Hickey-Krys
    Fabbro-MacLeod
    Farrance-Kotkansalo

    Switzer, Diffley

    (is Crotty coming this year or next? I've excluded thinking he is next year. If he is 2017, then maybe he bumps MacLeod after getting his feet wet)

    G (this one is easy)
    Oettinger
    Prawdzik
    Hotte

    Despite the losses of Keller, JFK, and McAvoy, this team has some serious potential. The talent may be more spread out than last year. The 4th line I have above would have been a 3rd line last year. I really don't know what Amonte's talent level is, maybe he and Olsson switch places. If Cloonan struggles to score again, he could end up on the bench.

    Re: bu off-season - #1

    Think Olsson might be a factor if can stay healthy
    Thought Crotty was coming this year. Hard to believe
    7 drafted defensemen
    Think 3-4 liners and extras will fight for playing time

    Yes, Nik is above cloonan. He just needs to stay healthy.

    Re: bu off-season - #1

    I could certainly see Nik having a better year than Cloonan if he stays healthy. I was just thinking more in terms of their style. Olsson is a lot more physical, which I think is a better 4th line fit (I could see that 4th line seeing a lot more playing time than recent years). I feel like Cloonan on the 4th line isn't a good fit. Either he starts scoring and is on the 3rd line, or he is on the sidelines.

If Cloonan struggles to score again, he could end up on the bench.
    Skating five newcomers in the top nine—or an all-rookie second line--seems unlikely. Amonte is more likely to be fighting for a spot on the fourth line. A healthy Olsson can play either wing and would help make the third line more productive than last year. My guess:
    Greenway- Carpenter -Harper
    Tkachuk - Bowers - Curry
    Crone-Melanson- Olsson
    Phelps- - Cloonan -Chabot
    Cockerill-Amonte –Witkowski

    Believe that McDermott is playing a season of junior and may return in 2018. I can see Harper taking over Keller's role on the power play. Cockerill's speed, skill on the PK and ability to play the offwing could move him up the chart. Don't know much about Witkowski other than he was a good scorer, playing with Harper at AOF and again last year in the BCHL while playing for a weak team.

    On D, does Quinn keep Hickey and Fabbro together or split them up? If they stay together, then Krys-MacLeod. Five guys competing for the last pairing.
