Terrier recruit class ranked #1 in HE; US vs. Finland at NJEC today-UPDATED

NTDP U18 teammates sign their letters of intent to BU (L-R: Kieffer Bellows, Jake Oettinger, Clayton Keller and Chad Krys)

SB Nation’s Jeff Cox has ranked the Hockey East recruiting classes for 2016 and BU’s nine-man class—featuring three first-round NHL picks, second- and fourth-rounders and a projected 2017 first-round pick—is the “star-studded” headliner. Cox noted:

“No staff in the country is currently even in the same stratosphere as the Terriers when it comes to finding and securing top talent.”

Looking back
Former Terrier All-American Jack Ferreira, who led BU to its first NCAA tournament appearance in the Jack Kelley era, will be the recipient of the Rhode Island Native Born Hockey Achievement Award at the R.I. Reds Heritage Society event this Sunday. 

Following his BU career and a brief stint in college coaching, began a four-decade career in scouting and management, beginning when he rejoined Kelley with the New England Whalers.  Among the stops: NY Rangers’ Director of Player Development; Minnesota North Stars’ General Manager; San Jose Sharks’ General Manager; Anaheim Ducks’ General Manager; and Special Assistant to the GM of the Los Angeles Kings, his current position.

Ferriera set a program record with eight shutouts during the 1964-65 season and earned first-team All-American honors.  The following season, he backboned BU’s 27-8-0 squad that played in the NCAA Frozen Four.  He remains the career co-leader in shutouts, along with John Curry, at 13.
