Midweek Linkorama

Senior Ahti Oksanen, who on Monday was named Hockey East Player of the Week, added more recognition for his two-goal, four-assist performance against Maine as one of the NCAA’s three stars of the week.  ESPN's John Buccigross tweeted that the top four goal-scorers in Division 1 over the past two seasons are: Harvard's Jimmy Vesey (46) and Oksanen (38), tied with Omaha's Austin Ortega and Quinnipiac's Sam Anas.


SB Nation's Cox has also put together a list of the top 10 NHL prospect defenseman currently in Hockey East and it includes McAvoy, sophomore Brandon Hickey (photo), senior captain Matt Grzelcyk and junior Doyle Somerby, who comprise two-thirds of BU’s starting defense corps.

Looking ahead
A new video from State Champs! Power Play has an NTDP focus with interviews featuring 2016 recruits Chad Krys, Kieffer Bellows and Clayton Keller, along with game action featuring a goal from Bellows for the U18s and 2018 recruit Logan Cockerill for the U17s.

2016 recruit Dante Fabbro skated for Team West in last night’s CJHL Top Prospects game in Surrey, British Columbia. The right-shot defenseman has a 10-38-48 line in 33 games and leads all BCHL defensemen in points-per-game (1.45) by a wide margin.

2017 recruit Patrick Harper scored a goal and two assists--including setting up the game-winner as Avon Old Farms edged Loomis-Chaffee, 4-3. The top-ranked Winged Beavers extended their unbeaten streak to 14 games and their record to 13-1-2, while Harper upped his team-leading points total to 41 (12G, 29A) in 16 games.

2018 recruit Tyler Weiss (photo) roofed a backhand shot for his 19th goal of the season, but the Don Mills Flyers fell to the Junior Canadians, 3-2, in GTHL action. The Raleigh, North Carolina native has a team-leading 35 points (19G, 16A) in 25 games.

2019 recruit Case McCarthy is ranked #3 by PrioritySelection in its initial rankings for the 2017 OHL entry draft. McCarthy, a Clarence, New York native who plays for the GTHL Mississauga Rebels, is a right-shot defenseman with size and strong offensive upside.

Looking back
Jack Eichel scored his 15th and 16th goals of the season to spark a Sabres’ comeback win against Ottawa, 3-2. The former BU MVP and All-American, who scored the game-winner and earned first-star honors, now has 34 points, second best among NHL rookies.  Eichel has 20 points in his last 18 games, and with three two-goal games already, he’s tied with Patrick Kane and Steven Stamkos on the list of most multiple-goal games as a rookie.

No Terriers made the score sheet in last night’s 2-0 Penguins win over the Devils, but a pair of BU alums were calling the shots behind the benches. John Hynes is in his first season as New Jersey’s head coach, while Mike Sullivan (photo) was elevated to Pittsburgh’s top spot earlier this season. Former Terriers and current Penguins Nick Bonino and David Warsofsky both sat out with injuries. Ten seasons ago, Sullivan was behind the Bruins bench for several games against the Islanders, coached by former BU All-American and captain of the 1971 national championship team Steve Stirling

Adam Clendening has been claimed on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers. Earlier this month, the Penguins had traded him to Anaheim. Previous NHL stops included Chicago and Vancouver. He’s made 30 NHL starts.
