OverTheBoards.net has posted an analysis of BU’s 2013 recruits, noting that many members of the 2013 class will be expected to immediately step into the Terrier lineup. OTB has been running a series of reports on recruit classes.
In addition to the five forwards and three defensemen who are now freshmen, the report notes three future recruits: forward Jack Eichel who will return to the NTDP and skate for the U18s; goalie Shane Starrett, who will refine his game in the USHL with Sioux Falls and, forward Bobo Carpenter, the leading returning scorer at Austin Prep.
Carpenter, a 2015 recruit, recently competed in the Beantown Summer Classic where he tied for third leading scorer (4-2-6 in five games), earning kudos from The Hockey News.
OTB also tweeted that Dexter School standout Ryan Donato, #16 uncommitted on OTB’s Select 70, “has been offered by BU and is visiting BC next week. Harvard is a potential D1 home as well.”
Donato, who scored 60 points (29-31) last season and also participated in the Beantown Summer Classic and the USA Hockey Select 16s, is the son of Harvard Head Coach Ted Donato and the nephew of Dexter coach—and former Terrier—Dan Donato.
More than forty Terrier Hockey alums turned out for the annual golf tournament at River Bend Country Club in West Bridgewater, Mass. The winning team was a quartet made up of Keith Emery (shown sinking the winning put), Bobby Hanson, Kevin Kielt and Greq Quebec. The two alums who traveled the furthest to attend were Gary Fay (Switzerland) and all-time Terrier scoring champ and former NHLer John Cullen (Atlanta).
Also participating were: David Quinn, Brad Zancanaro, Brian McConnell, Freddy Meyer, Brian Collins, Dan Cavanaugh, Dan Ronan, Mike Sylvia, Pat Aufiero, Mike Eruzione Jr., Ryan Weston, Karson Gillespie, John McCarthy, Brandon Yip, Ryan Monaghan, Kevin Schaeffer, Craig Sanders, Kevin Gilroy, Brian Strait, Jason Lawrence, Ross Gaudet, Ed Walsh, Dan Carnevale, Cleon Daskalakis, Pete Marshall, Tad Doherty, Tim Kimball, Bill Whelton, John Cronin,Marc Hetnik, Matt Marden, Mark Savran, Brian Durocher, Shawn McEachern, Scott Young, Bob Deraney, and Scott Shaunessy.
The Medford Transcript spoke with local resident and Arlington Catholic standout Natalie Flynn who is a freshman forward in Coach Brian Durocher’s 2013 recruit class. Flynn will be playing at Walter Brown Arena where she attended BU games growing up.
