Linkorama—Central Scouting Final Rankings

Central Scouting's final ranking of 2007 draft eligibles are out. The rankings were completed prior to the World U18 Championships and don’t reflect that event. All the BU draft-eligible recruits moved up from their mid-term rankings, save Kevin Shattenkirk, who dropped to #34 among North Americans. However, other draft services, such ISS and McKeen’s, have the U18 captain ranked considerably higher.
  • Kevin Shattenkirk 13—> 34
  • Colby Cohen 27—> 25
  • Andrew Glass 110—> 87
  • Nick Bonino 117—> 89

Goalies are rated separately. 2008 recruit Kieran Millan was unranked at midterm, but #17 among North American goalies in the final ranking...Matt Marshall, Glass's teammate at Nobles and a prospect that BU and other HE schools are interested in, dropped from #39 at midterm to #63... Colin Wilson is not ranked because he is draft eligible in 2008 due to a late birthdate, however, services both McKeen's and ISS project him to be a high first round choice...Both Shattenkirk and Cohen were ranked well ahead of D- Brandon Smith (#68) whom BU had recruited, but lost to Wisconsin.

2008 recruit David Warsofsky, the USHR Prep Defenseman of the Year, has been Selected for the Masschusetts Select 17 Team that will compete this summer in the National Festival...The Salem News, which had the early scoop on Brian McGuirk's selection as Terrier captain for the 2007-08 season, now profiles the senior to be from Danvers...Brian''s predecessor a decade ago, Chris Drury takes his track record of playoff excellence into the Conference semi-finals where he's expected to match-up with the Rangers Jaromir Jagr.
