IBUH: Quinn, Phelps, Pritchett; BU All-Access Episode 5

Episode 18 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, junior forward Chase Phelps and Notre Dame play-by-play announcer Darrin Pritchett. Phelps, who had a goal and an assist in Saturday’s 8-4 win against New Hampshire, played for Shattuck St. Mary’s Prep prior to BU and was a teammate of Jordan Greenway. Skating most recently on BU’s third line, he has a 7-6-13 career scoring line as a Terrier. Pritchett has been the radio voice of Fighting Irish hockey since 2009. He also handles play-by-play for the Chicago Cubs A level team in South Bend.

BU Terriers All-Access #5 looks at the 2017 Beanpot Tournament and offers profiles of former BU captain and coach of the defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins Mike Sullivan and freshman standout Clayton Keller.

TSN Scouting Director Craig Button has posted his list of 50 top hockey prospects not currently in the NHL and Keller is at the top of the list. Two other current Terriers were ranked by TSN: Charlie McAvoy #9 and Greenway #47.  In addition, Danny O’Regan, enjoying a strong first pro season (45 points in 43 games) with San Jose’s AHL affiliate, is #28.

Looking ahead
2020 recruit Trevor Zegras scored a pair of goals in Avon Old Farms’ 5-0 win against The Canterbury School. It was the second two-goal effort in his last three games for the sophomore center who leads the Winged Beavers with 33 points (16G, 17A) in 24 games. 

SBNation’s Jeff Cox took in the St. Sebastian’s-Lawrence Academy game and offered some thoughts on 2020 recruit Braden Doyle, a sophomore defenseman who played at Shattuck St. Mary’s last season.

Braden Doyle, #9 Lawrence Academy, Soph., D, Shoots Left, 8/24/01, 5-10/165 (Boston University) - Wednesday’s viewing did nothing to change the opinion on the future Terrier. He’s a dynamic skater who can impact the puck possession game in a major way from the back end. He makes some great lead passes and can skate the puck up ice. He made a terrific move where he toe-dragged a defender in the neutral zone. He might take a few more chances than his coaches would like, but he’s fun to watch. He just has incredible vision, both in transit and in the attacking zone. His highlight reel pass was to Shea for a break-in chance. He made a very good pass into the slot from the left point on the power play. He has a good stick and keeps pucks moving forward. Nitpicking, he still has a little work to do thinking the game defensively, but it’s something that will continue to develop. He’s probably on the fringe of being a NTDP candidate and a first three round pick in the USHL Phase I Draft.

Looking ahead
Colin Wilson scored a goal and added an assist for Nashville in a 6-5 overtime loss to Calgary.
