Fortunato exits; Bach and Leslie put on the Maple Leaf

Brandon Fortunato has left the BU hockey program and will transfer to Quinnipiac.  The North Hills, N.Y., native who scored 40 points (6G, 34A) in 79 games for BU, will sit out the 2016-17 season before completing his remaining two seasons of eligibility.

With Fortunato’s departure, BU has eight blueliners led by senior Captain Doyle Somerby.  Also returning are juniors Brien Diffley, Brandon Hickey and John MacLeod, and sophomore Charlie McAvoy. Highly-touted freshmen Dante Fabbro and Chad Krys complete the blueline corps
