Looking ahead

2010 recruit Charlie Coyle is one of 100 draft-eligible prospects attending the NHL combine in Toronto this week. The Scouting Report has ranked Coyle at #35 for the June draft, calling him "a big winger that moves well on the ice and isn’t afraid to go to the dirty areas. He competes hard in the corners and has a good scoring touch in front of the net."

While Terrier fans are aware that Coyle is the cousin of BU and NHL standout Tony Amonte, the South Shore Kings forward has a second family connection to the NHL. He's also a cousin of Weymouth's Bobby Sheehan who played 310 NHL games, including stints with Montreal, Chicago, the Rangers, Detroit and Los Angeles, as well as the WHA's N.Y. Raiders.

2013 recruit Matt Gryzelcyk, defenseman who played at Belmont Hlil last season, has been added to the 2010-11 roster of the NTDP U17s. David Warsofsky, who will be a BU assistant captain next season, is the most recent Terrier blueliner to come through the NTDP program. 2011 recruit Alexx Privitera will play for the U18s next season. Kevin Shattenkirk, Colby Cohen, Ryan Whitney, Bryan Miller, Freddy Meyer and Pat Aufiero are are BU defensemen who played for the NTDP.
