2007 BU recruits pace NTDP U18 wins

It was another good weekend for the future Terrier contingent on the NTDP U-18 team, especially Colin Wilson. On Friday, the 6-0, 190 lb center, son of former NHLer Cary Wilson, tallied an unassisted goal and a shorthander en route to a three-point night in the U18s’ 6-4 win over Mahoning Valley.

What happened the next night in the U18s’ first game against a USHL team was a true hockey rarity. Tied with Indiana at 1-1 in the waning seconds of the third period, the U-18s faced a two-man disadvantage and a defensive zone draw. Indiana pulled its goalie, creating a 6-on-3 advantage. But Wilson won the faceoff back to RD Kevin Shattenkirk, who fired the puck the length of the ice into the empty net, just beating the buzzer. The assist gave Wilson a team-leading 10 points in 6 games, while Shattenkirk’s second goal of the season also was his second game-winning goal. Details.
