News of the recruits

Three future Terriers played in this past weekend’s ProAm Hockey PreDraft International tournament. 2007 forward Joe Pereira (May 7 post) led his Hockey Opportunity team in scoring with 3-4-7 in four games. Hockey Opportunity was eliminated in the playoffs by ProSkills Hockey which included newest recruit Ethan Werek (May 6 post). Ethan registered two assists in the preliminary round and two goals in three playoff games. 2008 recruit David Warsofsky played for Team New England, putting up four assists in four games. His Cushing roommate, member of next season’s NTDP U17s and BU recruiting target, Ryan Bourque, scored a pair of goals for Team New England.

A new blog that features profiles of 2007 NHL draft eligible players, NHLdraftbuzz, has made 2007 recruit Nick Bonino one of its first subjects for review. The reports says:

BU recruit Nick Bonino is an enigma with subpar skating but superb offensive tools .. seems to always find his way onto score sheets .. is downright dangerous in the offensive zone and makes his presence known with a lethal release .. is a scary winger on the power play when he sets up at the hash marks .. owns a potent selection of shots and an impressive willingness to fire at any time ...

When Bonino arrives at BU for summer semester in July, we can be sure that Mike Boyle will put Bonino on a strength and conditioning regimen designed to improve his skating as he’s done for countless Terriers, such as Mike Pandolfo, and NHL players. Boyle's state of the art training facility at Agganis Arena includes a 50- yard sprint straightaway track.
