Power forward commits to BU; Quinn reflects on season

BU has received a commitment from New Hampshire Junior Monarchs forward Matt Quercia. According the Heisenberg list, the 6-2, 185 lb., left-shot forward will join the Terriers' 2018 or 2019 recruit class.

An Andover, Mass., native, Quercia played for several Junior Monarchs teams last year, leading the 16U EJEPL squad in scoring with 31 points (14G, 17A) in 18 games. He also had 14 points in 14 games for the 16U ECEL team and later moved up to the EHL Premier entry, with a 4-3-7 line in nine playoff games, helping the Junior Monarchs to the championship. Monarchs GM and Coach Ryan Frew:

"Quercia is a dynamic player, who plays a heavy game and can really shoot it. The kid is clutch and scored some big goals. He's fun to watch, and he never gets intimidated. He never missed a step when he got called up to the big team."
In 2014-15, Quercia scored 16 goals and 19 assists in 27 games for the Jr. Monarchs 16U USPHL squad. Drafted by the Quebec Remparts in the 2015 QMJHL draft, he briefly attended the Remparts’ training camp, before leaving to retain his college eligibility.

USHR reports: "He's one of those guys who does everything well. He has good size, and is strong on his skates. Has power forward potential."

OTB's Mark Bilotta :
