Rodrigues to sign ELC with Buffalo

Terrier senior wing Evan Rodrigues will sign a two-year entry level contract with the Buffalo Sabres, according to several media reports. NHL agent Brian Bartleet tweeted that the winger from Ontario evaluated multiple offers. 

Rodrigues enjoyed a career-best — and second in the nation—season in 2014-15 scoring 61 points  (21G, 40A). He was named Hockey East’s Player of the Month in both January and March as well as Most Outstanding Player in the NCAA Northeast Regional. It is expected that the Sabres will use the second overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft to select Rodrigues’ linemate, freshman Jack Eichel.

Junior Matt Lane’s second-period goal against Minnesota Duluth in the Northeast Region final was selected by the NCAA as one of the top 10 plays of the college hockey season.

The New England Hockey Writers Association banquet was held last night with David Quinn receiving the Coach of the Year Award and Eichel receiving Player of the Year honors. In addition former Terrier skater and assistant coach Don "Toot" Cahoon received the Parker-York Award for his many years of contributions to New England Hockey. report

Looking ahead looks at some of the top prospects in BU’s recruiting pipeline, including 2015 recruits Maxim Letunov, Robert Carpenter, and Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, and 2016 recruits Kieffer Bellows and Clayton Keller.

Of the BU recruits playing in the USHL, only Bellows’ team remains alive in the league playoffs, as Sioux Falls eliminated Sioux City (Carpenter) and Youngtown (Letunov and Vas Kolias) fell to Muskegon. Bellows scored 33 goals in the regular season and has added two more in the playoffs.

Matt Grainda of tweeted about two future Terriers currently playing in the World U18 Championships in Switzerland:

Clayton Keller (Boston U, NHL'16) has shown creativity with his feeds & play in open ice. Uses his size to avoid, hands to make great moves.

Another future Boston Terrier commit playing fairly impressive is Charlie McAvoy. NHL'16 eligible defender w/great hockey sense and vision.

Looking back
Colin Wilson scored his fourth goal of Nashville’s playoff series with Chicago, but the Predators fell in overtime, 3-2.
