New S&C coach is a Mike Boyle disciple; Wise excels at Select 15s

BU Hockey has a new Strength and Conditioning coach, succeeding Anthony Morando. Sean Skahan is a Mike Boyle disciple (as is Morando) and spent the past 13 seasons as S&C coach for the Anaheim Ducks. While an undergrad at UMass-Boston, he interned at BU (under Glenn Harris) and at the Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning facility (MBSC).  He went on to become an assistant S&C coach at BC and at North Dakota.  During his years with the Ducks, Sean worked with former BU standout Nick Bonino.

Mike Boyle:

“Sean Skahan is not just one of the smartest guys in the hockey strength and conditioning field – he’s one of the smartest people in the industry period. A class act, who never hesitates to help, advise or teach when needed, Sean is what I consider to be a true pro, and above all a gentleman. I’m proud to be part of a profession that includes people like Sean Skahan”

Looking ahead
2018 recruit Jake Wise followed up Monday's five-point effort with two goals and two assists today to finish atop the scoring chart at the USA Hockey Select 15 development camp with 15 (6G, 9A) points. On Monday, he led Team Royal to a 7-5 win over Team Forest and today's 4-point performance spurred Royal past Navy, by an 11-2 count.  The left-shot forward from North Andover, Mass., led Royal to a first-place finish in the tournament. He has points in all four games he’s played and his total is five more than any other skater. 

A left-shot center, Wise is expected to spend another season at Central Catholic High School where he scored 42 points (16G, 26A) in 25 games as a freshman. There have been reports that he's already been invited to join the NTDP U17s in 2016.
