Looking ahead to the 2015 draft, The Boston Herald talked with incoming BU freshman Jack Eichel, projected to be one of the top three picks a year from now, and NTDP U18 coach Jon Gruden, who explains why.
►Earlier tonight, Eichel was interviewed on TSN’s Countdown Show with Bob McKenize.

Kolias, who played for Chicago Mission last season, had his USHL rights acquired by Youngstown and he’ll join 2015 recruit Maxim Letunov on the Phantoms next season. McDermott, an emerging star at The Westminster School last season, was selected by the Tri-City Storm in the recent USHL Futures Draft.

Looking back
Former BU All-American and 2009 Hobey Baker Award winner Matt Gilroy has signed on for next season with Atlant Moscow Oblast of the KHL.  Gilroy, who split last season between the Florida Panthers and AHL affiliate San Antonio, had signed a free agent contract with the NY Rangers within days of BU’s overtime win against Miami in the 2009 Frozen Four final.

Another blueliner from the 2009 national championship team, Eric Gryba, has signed a new contract with Ottawa covering two seasons and totaling $2.5 million.

Former Terrier captain Nick Bonino was traded by Anaheim to Vancouver for Ryan Kesler. Bonino scored a career-best 49 points for the Ducks last season and added four goals in the playoffs.
