Braden Doyle, #9 Lawrence Academy, Defenseman, Left Shot, 8/24/01, 5’10"/165 (Boston University) - He scored two goals and it was my best viewing of him in a long time. His physical tools are very good, and always are. His skating, vision and puck-moving capabilities are consistently excellent. However, what stood out today was his poise and composure for being an ‘01 in prep. He didn't rush things and didn't appear intimidated going into corners with older players. Obviously he lacks a little bit of strength when going against ‘98s. His second goal put LA up by two and was a thing of beauty. He picked up a drop pass and sent a laser right under the bar. He has a good stick and makes crisp passes right on the tape of his teammates. He's a classic puck-transporting defenseman. The only knock on him came on a play in the third period when he lunged at a forward leaving the zone and missed, leading to a two-on-one for Milton. He has a legitimate chance to make the NTDP and be a top three round NHL pick in 2019.
Former Terrier Adam Clendening recorded his sixth assist of the season on a goal that brought the NY Rangers to within one goal of the Dallas Stars, but the Blue Shirts lost 7-6.
