Four 2016 recruits from the NTDP U18s--Kieffer Bellows, Clayton Keller, Chad Krys and Jake Oettinger--along with 2017 recruit and Avon Old Farms top scorer Patrick Harper,, were in the TD Garden stands for Monday's game. [Note: If you spotted other former at the Garden, let us know with a comment.]

The duo of Clayton Keller and Kieffer Bellows has been unstoppable, and that’s good news for both NTDP and Boston University. The two Terrier commits are both well over a point-per-game pace with Keller averaging 2.00 Pt/G and Bellows at 1.59 Pt/G. Bellows capped off his weekend with four goals, and two game-winning goals in a back-to-back set. Just as impressive has been the play of 2017 NHL Draft eligible goaltender Jake Oettinger. The Lakeville, MN native is chasing every Team USA USHL goaltending single season record including John Gibson’s 2010-11 USHL season record for save percentage (.926%), Thatcher Demko and Jack Campell’s GAA record (2.21) and Demko’s 2012-13 record for most wins (15). With seven games remaining Oettinger is 10-1-0-0 with a 2.16 GAA and .925 SV%.
