Blixt is a 2018 recruit. He's also an older kid, turns 20 next month.

I saw his age after I made my post. Looks like we'll have eight next season unless Fabbro leaves early. He's good but certainly not dominant so I hope he stays.

GQ should trade two of them for some scoring help up front.

So NOT age appropriate. Interesting... :)

Well, age appropriate if he dons the scarlet and white!

Is Jake Wise expected back this season from his broken collarbone? It's been so long, I don't even recall if he has played a single game for the U18s. Is there any chance he decides/is asked to play a year in the USHL (if he isn't back on the ice soon)?

About two weeks ago, a source out in Michigan told me he was two weeks away from returning. So most likely his first game would be on Dec. 30 against North Dakota and first four games would all be against college teams, including Jan. 5 at BU. Same source said the U18s need him to assume a spot centering one of the top 2 lines. I believe all four BU recruited forwards on the U18s have signed their LOIs.

Also hearing that BU is looking at another possible forward to add to next year's class. Not sure how that might impact Matt Quercia (Sioux Falls) who is listed by Heisenberg as 2018 or 2019. I'd imagine BU will look for one more defenseman, too, with three senior Ds on the roster.

Hockeyprospect.com (https://www.hockeyprospect.com/2018-ohl-draft-top-25-heo-midget-aaa-prospects/) ranked 2020 recruits Dylan Peterson and Donovan Sbrango as the top two prospects in the Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) Midget AAA league.

Tweet from Providene Journal's Mark Divver‏

Sabres pick Max Willman's senior season @BrownMensHockey over after 9 games because of injury. Word is he's looking to play elsewhere next year as grad student. Smart money is on BU

11-15-26 in 31 games as a junior. 6'0" center. Sabres 5th round pick in 2014. Massachusetts kid.

Yes, 6'1, 180 LW is Alex's younger brother. Plays for Buffalo Jr. Sabres 16U. BU's first 2021 recruit, according to Heisenberg.

Correction. Luke Tuch is a 2020 recruit. Heisenberg and College Hockey Inc. have updated their listings. Tuch joins a sizeable and talented class that includes Dylan Peterson, Josh Lawrence, Braden Doyle, Cade Webber, Donovan Sebrango and goalie Drew Commesso.

4.5⭐️ F is strong, fluid skater with soft, slick hands & touch around the net. Plays a physical, well-rounded game & earned high grades in seven major showcases. Likely NTDP bound with great upside. His older brother is former BC player @alextuch89. @T1EHL @BuffaloJrSabres https://twitter.com/luketuch37/status/952238224277164033 Ö

First '03 recruit, Portledge School freshman/Long Island Gulls 14U/16U left wing Jeremy Wilmer.


Jeff Cox @JeffCoxSports 1h1 hour ago
BU just received commitment from Ď03 Jeremy Wilmer. Small forward has elite hockey sense, can skate and has good skill set. All 4 Beanpot schools had interest.


Priority Selection @PrioritySelect 1h1 hour ago
Jeremy Wilmer commits to Boston University, as the Terriers land one of the most impactful forwards in the Ď03 crop.

Would we even have a scholly for Ollie Wallie if he doesn't get into Harvard? I've heard he comes with highly engaged parents....

But it would mean 5 USNDTP forwards in one recruiting class, which must be a record.

Oliver Wahlstrom may have decommitted from Harvard and would subsequently be choosing between BU and BC.

He's the kid who caught internet fame for this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=12&v=6TxGVSw6Ayw

Hopefully he knows if he comes to BU that #97 he's wearing in the video is unofficially retired.

Based on my understanding, that's a diplomatic way of describing it...

Yes, I was trying to be nice, since I don't have any 100% credible facts...but have heard the rumors.

FWIW (and for all I know he could still go to Harvard), when he committed to Harvard shortly after decommitting from his home-state Black Bears, I thought "how can somebody to commit to a school as hard to get into as Harvard when they have barely started high school and have no way to show that they are at that level of academic ability".
