SB Nation's write-up of 2020 recruit Trevor Zegras and others at Avon Old Farms-Berkshire game. Zegras, a sophomore, leads AOF with 22 points in 14 games. Jeff Cox calls him an "elite skater with a tremendous overall offensive skill set."

This article mentioned the new recruit, who had not committed at the time the article was written. "He's being pursued by Penn State, Providence, BC and BU among others, several of whom have offered."

You guys landed a good one there I think. I caught a Rivers game a few weeks ago and Webber played very well. Good size, skates well, you wouldn't know he was a Freshman until you looked at the program.

A few interesting tweets by Priority Selections, which focuses on prospects for the OHL draft:

Priority Selection ‏@PrioritySelect 12h12 hours ago

On a serious note, Vlasic is still quite raw, but he's got a high ceiling. Moves the puck well and has the size and instincts you look for.
Priority Selection ‏@PrioritySelect 12h12 hours ago

Also on a serious note: how is BU going to slot in McCarthy, Doyle, Webber, and now Vlasic? That's going to be a juggling act.
All four í01 defenseman played in last Summerís USA Hockey Select 15. USHR gave Vlassic, Webber and Doyle ďAĒ ratings and McCarthy an ďA+Ē rating. And all four are likely invitees to the NTDP Evaluation Camp, along with forwards Robert Mastrosimone and Trevor Zegras. Most likely McCarthy and Vlassic are for 2019, Doyle and Webber for 2020. With 8 D recruits lined up for the next four classes, Quinn should be done with Ds for the foreseeable future

BU secures a verbal for 2020 from St. Sebastian's freshman RW Liam Connors. Had 15G, 13A skating on first line for Arrows, who reached Large School tournament semis. Connors was #6 on the Jeff Cox/SB Nation list of top uncommitted Prep '01s last month. #2 on the list, Cade Webber, committed to BU last month.

It doesn't sound like David Quinn's recruits are as elite as previous years.

It doesn't sound like David Quinn's recruits are as elite as previous years.

That's a strange conclusion given that there were six BU recruits out of the 45 invitees, including four out 16 defensemen, and the top-rated forward and third-rated D-man according to this ranking. Mastrosimone (#10 forward) was sidelined most of this year with a broken leg after putting up Keller-like numbers (no, he's not the next Keller) at Shattuck. BU could easily have four on the final squad, which is the same number as on the current U17s. We'll see.
