A goalie for the future

BU has received a verbal commitment from goalie Shane Starrett of the Selects Hockey Academy U18 squad at South Kent School. The 6-5, 190 lb. senior netminder from Bellingham, Mass., previously played for Catholic Memorial High School, which is the alma mater of BU Coach Jack Parker and assistants Mike Bavis and Buddy Powers, as well as assistant captain Garrett Noonan.

Playing for Catholic Memorial, Starrett turns aside a shot for 2013 recruit Brendan Collier (7) of Malden Catholic.  (Photo credit Barry Chin/The Boston Globe/Getty Images) reports that, this season, Starrett has posted a 24-12-4 record in 2047 minutes played, a 1.90 GAA and a .915 save percentage for the SHA U18s, who finished in first place in the Midget Major U18 division of the U.S. Elite Hockey League. Playoffs begin next weekend in Wayne, N.J.

Starrett, who plays summer hockey with the New England Nordiques, was ranked #35 among North American goalies in NHL Central Scouting’s midterm rankings.

Among the highlights of his junior year at CM was a 41 save, 2-2 OT tie against Brendan Collier and eventual repeat state champ Malden Catholic.

After last fall’s New England Prep League Showcase, U.S. Hockey Report wrote:

Shane Starrett, G, ’94 (Selects Academy) 6-5/190 — Towers over the opposition. We did not get to see him in action as long as we would have liked, but there is no doubt that he is interesting. Played for Catholic Memorial last season and stood on his head against St. Sebastian’s, leading them to a 2-1 victory in a game we were in attendance at. Tons of upside here. His older brother, Peter, played defense (sparingly) at Harvard, and graduated this past spring. 

Looking ahead
2014 recruit Jack Eichel, playing his fifth game for the NTDP U18s, scored his second goal, which proved to be the game winner in the U18s’ 3-1 win against Green Bay, and earned 2nd-star honors. Eichel has a combined 21 goals and 15 assists this season.

Looking back
Anaheim Ducks’ Nick Bonino, in Arizona for tonight’s game against the Coyotes, spent the off day at the Angels training camp where he and a few teammates took part in batting practice and Nick got to stand in on pitches from Jared Weaver.

Rick DiPietro stopped 22 shots in a 4-3 Bridgeport win over Adirondack for his first win since clearing waivers.

►Blog contributor and BU alum Brendan Mahoney, now doing graduate studies at Notre Dame, has had some of the luck of the Irish rub off on him. He is the winner of a Frozen Four ticket giveaway held by Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and will attend the 2013 finals at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh
