Eichel & Rodrigues reunite at Sabres development camp

Jack Eichel and Evan Rodrigues, who combined to score 132 points for the Terriers last season, were back on the ice together yesterday at Buffalo Sabres Development Camp. Linemates who led BU to the NCAA championship game, they finished first and second in the nation in scoring with Eichel tallying 71 points and ERod adding 61.

Shortly after the end of the season, Rodrigues, who finished his BU career with 121 points, signed a two-year entry-level contract with Buffalo. Eichel inked a three-year deal with the Sabres shortly after being selected second overall in the Entry Draft.

Looking ahead
Terriers lost one of their 2017 recruits when Kole Sherwood signed an entry level contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The 18 year old, 6’0” right wing from New Albany, Ohio, a Columbus suburb, was an undrafted invitee to the Blue Jackets’ development camp where he impressed the staff.  Apparently not wanting to risk losing the talented local player in next June’s draft, the Blue Jackets signed Sherwood, who forfeits his NCAA eligibility. He’ll play for London in the OHL this season, rather than USHL Youngstown as previously intended.  Sherwood had scored 48 points in 31 games for the Junior Blue Jackets last season.

Steve Greeley tweeted:
