Recruiting Update

Their prep seasons are over but hockey continues for BU recruits Nick Bonino (2007) and Andrew Glass (2008). Bonino was the leading scoring in last weekend’s Hockey Night in Boston All Scholastic tournament with 3 goals and 7 assists. He also participated in the Spring Beantown Classic. No stats available yet. Glass is playing for the Cape Cod Whalers in the Tier I U18 National Championships in Fraser, Michigan. He had a pair of assists in the Whalers’ first game.

The NTDP U18s completed their North American schedule this past weekend and 2007 recruit Kevin Shattenkirk went out with a bang, registering his first hattrick in a 7-3 win over the Springfield Jr. Blues. Colin Wilson added a goal and an assist for the U18s bringing his scoring totals to 25-37-62 in 49 games. Terrier recruiting target Vinny Saponari, a U17 who has moved up to the older squad, registered his first two goals for the U18s. The team next plays in the IIHF World U18 Championships in Finland. Current team stats are here.

Colby Cohen’s 12-game point scoring streak (2 goals, 14 assists) ended Sunday night in a 1-0 Lincoln/USHL win, but his three assists for the weekend brought his season total to 54 points, tops among all league defenseman. With seven regular season games left, Cohen could become the first USHL blueliner in at least five years to reach 60 points. Only d-man Eli Vlaisavljevich, now at Michigan Tech, had more points than Cohen with 57 last season.
