96 F Bobo Carpenter – Austin Prep – 5’11 – 174 – Committed: BU
The son of former NHLer Bobby Carpenter plays a well-rounded game. Just as effective with the backcheck as he is on the rush in the offensive zone. Doesn’t need many offensive chances to find his way onto the score sheet; hard to take the puck off his stick and possesses a strong wrist shot. Consistently takes the puck to the net with speed, starts rushes from the opposing goal line and sets up shop at the point on the PP for Austin Prep. Will take key face offs in the defensive zone if the team needs to win possession. Plays best when his team needs him.

In advance of its final draft prospect rankings, NHL Central Scouting published lists of the top 10 2014 draft prospects in various leagues and regions.  Three Terrier recruits made the lists: Carpenter (USA East), MacLeod (USA West) and Spruce Grove defenseman Brandon Hickey (Canadian Junior A).
