    Seems this recruit was the BU staff taking a flyer on the kid in case he decided to go the college route. Wasn't projected to get here until fall '22, so plenty of time to fill the spot.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    Wilmer and Boucher were taken by Ottawa in later rounds. Both, along with Schmidt, are set to play for the NTDP U17s next season.

    At the Tier 1, 16U Nationals, Wilmer is the top scorer after four games (11 pts.). 2022 recruit Devin Kaplan is the leading goal scorer with six (3 two-goal games).

    BU has a new commitment, Selects Academy 15U right-shot center Ryan Greene. 6'0", 2003 birthdate. From Newfoundland (a first for BU?). 2nd leading scorer for the Selects with 31-50-81 in 50 games. A year ago, rang up 40 goals in 38 games in Bantam AAA. Played in the 2018 World Selects Invitational (5 points) and for Team Newfoundland in Canada's Winter Games (15 points in 7 games).

    Yeah, especially seeing that he plays for Selects, where I believe Josh Lawrence was playing when he committed.

    Ethan Phillips, who arrives in Sept., also played 3 1/2 seasons for Selects before joining USHL Sioux Falls.

    4 assists today for Zegras in Team USA's 6-0 win against defending U18 champ Finland, including this one to set up Hughes.
    Draft Dynasty posted a 5-minute 2018-19 highlight reel for Zegras, who is ranked #6 among N. Americans by NHL Central Scouting.

    Just prior to the new recruiting rules go into effect, BU has its first 2023 recruit.

    In New England Hockey Journal, Cox also reported:
    Fine, from Center Moriches, N.Y., plays for Mid-Fairfield. He spent the 2018-19 season on the bantam minor team, coached by former NHL star Marty St. Louis, whose son Lucas is also on the team.

    Fine visited the Boston University campus Friday morning prior to taking part in the Eastern Exposure Hockey All-Star Weekend at the Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center.

    Fine is certainly one of the top Ď05s in the United States and will be a candidate for the 2021-22 USA Hockey NTDP U-17 team.
    Fine was the MVP of last summer's Crimson Combine.
    USHR: Ryan Fine (Mid-Fairfield) -- "A skilled, smart, natural goal scorer who is unselfish and makes plays. Clever and a pure skater -- he just glides."

    Does he still require a babysitter?

    Now that we are talking about kids that are actually younger than my 9th-grade hockey player, it is that much more apparent how ludicrous it is to be making a college choice at that age. Some of these kids are just hitting puberty, and they are supposed to decide where they want to spend four of their most formative years, 4 to 5 years away? I know that it many cases these kids are projecting to be two year players, so maybe it doesn't really matter what they study, whether or not the school has a major they care about, etc. But it just makes a joke of the idea of college athletics.

    I for one, am glad that the new rules are going in.

    I think it's a win-win for both prospective student-athletes and the schools. Fewer decommitments will result and it puts further premium on coaches recruiting the right players for their programs than just seeking a verbal "commitment" from kids at such a young age as a means of deterring other coaches from poaching, or CHL teams from convincing them that Major Jr is the way to go.

    I know the criticism isn't levied at a kid line Fine more so than the current process. I hope Fine matures and develops into the player he's projected to be, honors his commitment and ends up being a terrific player at BU. But there's so much that can happen between now and 2023.

    that close should a goalie instinctively extend his stick to take out the 'pass'?
    a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.

    RW Quinn is the older brother of 2022 recruit defenseman Lane Hutson. Was a frequent linemate of recruits Jeremy Wilmer ('21) and Devin Kaplan ('22) on the North Jersey Avalanche 16U. Expected to arrive on Agganis Way in '21 or '22.

    I had heard last December at the St Sebastian's holiday tournament that he was reconsidering his BU choice
    Probably waited to see that he was accepted
    Good size but probably a bottom 6 forward

    Gorman's dad played for Princeton in the late 80s, early 90s when the Tigers' assistant coach was, yup, Len Quesnelle. HC Jim Higgins was a BU alum. Hearing Gorman was getting a partial, so this might enable Albie to go after another forward for next season.

    The HockeyWriters.com jumped Robert Mastrosimone from #54 to #32 on its draft board.
