Jake Wise, LC, 5-10/170, Fr., Central Catholic, 2/28/00 (Boston University) - There were a few shifts where he looked like a high school version of Jack Eichel. He's got that strong stride that allows him to look like he's coasting even though he's flying out there. He's got good hands and made a few plays happen, but overall didn't have his best game. He did have two assists including a real nice feed on the team's fourth goal in a 5-4 loss to St. John's in the consolation game.
