Any idea what is going on with Quinnipiac losing these good kids to BU?

You might get a better response to this question in a QU thread.
I have no inside info to these situations, but I do know QU had a wave of 4 or 5 cuts/roster-removals/whatever-you-want-to-call-it this offseason. If my kid had committed to a school that did that I would reevaluate my trust in the school, since obviously no one wants that to happen to their kid. No idea if that's what happened here, but it would be a consideration for me if I was in this situation.

Newest recruit Ethan Phillips' first career USHL goal was the game-winner for Sioux Falls last night. Phillips, a right-shot forward for Selects Hockey Academy 18U, is on loan to the Stampede this weekend and next.

2 guys were dismissed during last season for discipline reasons. 4 others were let go but its not like they didn't land on there feet. 2 went home to play college hockey in Canada and two transferred to NCAA D3 schools. Its not like they cut good players anyways. 3 of the 4 were healthy scratches every night. Its no different than a big school recruiting a player as a 14 year old but him not developing and that school walking away from them. Scholarships are one year commitments anyways that are renewed after every year anyways.

I wouldn't bother arguing with BurntBoats. If it was BC who got the kids previously committed to QU, he'd be crying about how BC steals recruits/doesn't follow the gentleman's agreement.

Yes, my point is both of these are a bad situation to be in for the kid and his parents. I would reevaluate my hypothetical child's commitment should it turn out that the school they committed to had a history of either walking away from commitments, or treating commitments as year to year -as opposed to 4 year- commitments, since I assume none of us would want to be scrambling to find a new school either before enrolling, or during an offseason before you have a degree (where the only option to not sit out a year would be to not play D1 hockey anymore).

I saw at least one. I was surprised that BU wasn't on it/them, and one of them was I think a list of 10 (maybe 8?). I thought Farabee and Wise alone would get us into he top 10, but there are so many college bound USNDTP payers that go in the first couple rounds now that I guess many programs are in a similar place.

Trevor Zegras named USHL forward of the week after seven points in two weekend games. Heís been on a tear with 16 points in seven games, including three assists vs. BU. Now one point behind Jack Hughes for U18s scoring lead and ahead of him in PPG.

You can find all of this data on the main page of "Neutral Zone" which may require you to join. Last year (this year's Frosh) ranked near the top. They show future years classes based on what is known. Next fall, BU is somewhere around 10th IIRC.

Having said that, these rankings are done numerically and based on their somewhat subjective 1-5 Star scouting system multiplied by the number of recruits who have committed. Projections of team success based on these ranking are nearly useless. Otherwise we would be able to count on seeing BU,BC, Michigan and NoDak in the Frozen Four each April!

We'll see your guys at Matthews on Thursday. I know you'll bring lots of fans to give aid and comfort to your young'uns a.k.a. the team.:D

NeutralZone now obscures most of its recruit-class ranking information for non-subscribers. While player rankings are understandably subjective, the site, unfortunately, makes lots of mistakes about the class year of recruits. Right now BU's 2020 class is ranked #1 with 10 recruits. Problem is, four of them are 2019 recruits--Zegras, Phillips, Fensore and Gorman. That said, I've heard that NZ scout Mark Billotta's opinion is respected.

Good profile piece (http://www.nyhockeyjournal.com/nyhockeyjournal/november_2018/MobilePagedArticle.action?articleId=1439489#articl eId1439489) on RD Case McCarthy who says he models his game on McAvoy's.

Trevor Zegras tied with Jack Hughes for the NTDP U18s scoring lead (https://www.usahockeyntdp.com/stats/team_instance/3756022?subseason=526408&tab=team_instance_player_stats).

LW Robert Mastrosimone of Chicago Steel added to the NTDP U18s for the Five Nations Tourney in the Czech Republic. Joins Zegras, Vlasic, McCarthy and Fensore on 23-man roster. Mastro is the Steel's top scorer with 8-5-13 in 11 games. Played for U.S. in the Hlinka-Gretzky tournament this past summer.

Update: 2020 recruit Cade Webber, who played in the U18 exhibition at Agganis, has also been added to Team USA. So six future Terriers on the roster.
