► Boston Hockey Blog: Five Thoughts on NU series
LHD David Farrance (5’11, 191 – Boston U.): Farrance displayed all the makings of a pro-level defender. Not only does he possess a booming, accurate shot, but his ability to create plays off the rush keeps opponents honest. Farrance has an exceptional set of hands and can handle any pass with relative ease, especially from across the ice. He scored a key goal against the Finns via a slap shot from just inside the blueline. And his hard wrister caused a rebound that led to Scott Reedy’s game winner. One night earlier, he split all five Czech skaters with a home run pass on Sean Dhooghe’s tape for a breakaway snipe. Outside of being under six feet tall, there are literally no weaknesses to his game.
