Catching Up with the Terriers

New England Hockey Journal examines three Bruins prospects including Terrier sophomore defenseman Matt Grzelcyk, who earned Hockey East All-Rookie team honors last season.

Looking ahead’s review of the top forwards at the Beantown Summer Classic includes strong assessments of BU 2015 or 2016 recruit Bobo Carpenter and prospect Ryan Donato, who reportedly has been offered by the Terriers.

2014 recruit Jonathan MacLeod has been named to the roster of USA Hockey’s 2nd annual All-American Prospects Game, set for Sept. 26 in Pittsburgh. MacLeod, who played for the NTDP U17s last season and now moves up to the U18s along with fellow recruit Jack Eichel, is one of 28 players rostered for the prospects game who appear on NHL Central Scouting’s Futures List for the 2014 draft.  A hard-hitting defensive blueliner, the 6-1 MacLeod played two seasons ago for Kimball Union as a teammate of current BU freshmen Doyle Somerby and Nick Roberto, helping the Wildcats earn the 2012 NEPSAC Simmons/Piatelli Championship.

We’ve added new recruiting page to our list of links in the sidebar. It’s College Hockey News’ “Recruit Watch.”
