2015 recruit Jordan Greenway (photo) and younger brother James, who will skate this season for the NTDP U-18 and U-17 squads respectively, were interviewed by their hometown paper, the Watertown, NY, Daily Times, about leaving their home in Potsdam to play first at Shattuck St. Mary’s and now with the NTDP.
Jordan, projected by numerous scouting services as a first round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, is a 6-4, 215 lb., left-shot power forward who had a 15-26-41 scoring line in 52 games for the U-17's last season. He committed to BU last December. Discussing his college choice, he pointed out that:
Younger brother James, a left-shot defenseman who scored 23 points (6g, 17a) last year for the Shattuck St. Mary’s U-16's, says he’d be interested in joining Jordan on Comm. Ave. ““I’ve basically followed him everywhere,” James said. “I know I have to kind of build my own road, but I’d love to play with him again.”
Playing for the U-17's, James will be a teammate of 2016 recruit Clayton Keller, who also played previously for Shattuck. The two NTDP squads begin practice today in Ann Arbor.
