A Scarlet Presence at the A-A Prospects Game; Game Times announced for 2015-16

Freshman Charlie McAvoy (photo) and 2016 recruits Kieffer Bellows, Clayton Keller and Chad Krys have been named to the 42-man roster for the 2015 All-American Prospects game in Buffalo. Set for Sept. 24, the game showcases top Americans who are eligible for the 2016 NHL entry draft.  All four have been projected as first-round draft picks in next June's draft by multiple ranking services, including Future Considerations, Draft Buzz and The's Sean Lafortune.

The three 2016 recruits will skate for the NTDP U18s this season. Keller (photo) and Krys were, respectively, the top scoring forward and blueliner last season on the U17s. Bellows played for USHL Sioux Falls, earning Rookie of the Year honors and helping the Stampede win the Clark Cup championship. During the IIHF World U18 championships, McAvoy and Krys comprised the top defensive pairing for gold-medal-winning team USA.

At last year’s AA Prospects game, which aired on the NHL Network, Jack Eichel and current freshman Jordan Greenway were standouts.  Eichel earned player of the game honors and would go on to win the 2015 Hobey Baker Award.

Krys, who committed to BU earlier this month, is featured in the September 2015 digital edition of New England Hockey Journal.

BU has announced starting times for the games on its 2015-16 schedule, which includes seven home games beginning at 4:00 p.m. The move to have some Saturday games begin earlier came in response to receiving positive feedback to 4 p.m. starts at Agganis Arena.

The Terriers play an exhibition game against Acadia on Oct. 3 (4 p.m.) before opening on the road against Union College on Oct. 10. The home opener, against Wisconsin, is a week later, Oct. 17, with puck drop at 7 p.m.
