Looking ahead
Two future Terriers, rugged defenseman Johnathan MacLeod (2014) and forward Bobo Carpenter (2015) were named to NHL Central Scouting’s preliminary Ones to Watch List for the 2014 draft. MacLeod, who skates for the NTDP U18s, was on the roster for USA Hockey’s All American Prospects Game scheduled for this Thursday, but isn’t available due to an injury. Carpenter, who will return to Austin Prep for his junior year, is currently skating for the Islanders Hockey Club 18U Midgets with a 2-2-4 scoring line in two games.

Examing potential candidates for next spring’s NTDP Tryout Camp, the Western Hockey Blog rated 2016 recruit Clayton Keller as a likely invitee.

"Clayton Keller-F-Shattuck-St. Mary's (Boston University commit)-Keller made his debut with Shattuck's top team this weekend and looked exceptional. Not very big, but continues to draw comparisons to Zach Parise, for his natural scoring ability, combined with his ability to play in the defensive zone as well."

Women’s Team
The defending Hockey East champion and national finalist Terriers held their first practice on Monday at Walter Brown Arena. Coach Brian Durocher’s squad, which returns 18 letterwinners, will play an exhibition game this Friday, hosting Western Ontario at 7 p.m.
