More media coverage:
● Belleville News-Democrat: Special night at Draft for Keller
● The Hockey Writers: Bruins Select McAvoy
Ridgefield Press: Blackhawks pick Krys

►Future Considerations: "[Patrick] Harper is an explosive offensive talent who reminds us of a young Paul Kariya."

SB Nation’s preliminary rankings for the 2017 draft peg incoming freshman goalie Jake Oettinger at #16 and as the top-ranked netminder.

Following Friday’s Twitter announcement of BU’s nine-man 2016 recruiting class, our friends at BurnTheBoats have updated their roster projections chart. The 27-man roster for next season will have three seniors, seven juniors, eight sophomores and ten freshmen (including one red-shirt freshman, goalie Max Prawdzik.

In case you missed it, the nine newcomers have made their uniform number selections: Bellows #9, Keller, #19, Harper #21, McDermott #28, Curry #10, Chabot #11, Krys #5, Fabbro #17 and Oettinger #29.

Looking back
Former BU MVP Alex Chiasson was traded by Ottawa to Calgary for defenseman Patrick Sieloff.  A second round pick of Dallas in 2009, Chiasson had 8 goals and 14 points last season for the Senators.

Is there a reason Fortunato is not listed on the 2016-17 team, but is listed on the 2017-18 team?
