Five Terriers at NHL Draft Combine

Goalie Jake Oettinger and four 2017 recruits are among 104 draft candidates at the NHL Combine in Buffalo, which began Sunday. Joining Hockey East’s All-Rookie goalie are center Shane Bowers and defensemen David Farrance, Kasper Katkansalo and Cameron Crotty.

From Oettinger’s NHL Draft Diary:

As a team we fell short of the goals we set and a lot of us, including myself, learned just how hard it is to win championships at the college level. I think it's more motivation this summer for a lot of guys to complete those goals and dreams of winning the Beanpot Tournament, Hockey East, and then winning the NCAA regional and Frozen Four. These are goals that every guy in our locker room has. We'll have to dig deep and remember the feeling of watching Harvard raise the Beanpot or watching the University of Denver win the national title on television when we were in our dorms. We have to use them as motivation to push us next season.

4. Question of the day
Center Shane Bowers of Waterloo in the USHL was asked in a team interview for the name of the bar he went to while on a recent visit to Boston University. Bowers, No. 16 on NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American skaters, will play for the Terriers in 2017-18.

"I told them I didn't go into any bars," he said.

4. Question of the day
Boston University goaltender Jake Oettinger (6-4, 212), No. 1 in NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American goalies, was asked in a team interview what personality trait he felt he possessed that would prevent him from playing in the NHL. 
"I had to think about it and then told them I didn't think there was a personality trait of mine that would prevent me from playing," Oettinger said. "I think I have all the tools and the work ethic necessary to potentially be a No. 1 in the NHL one day."

Looking back
Nick Bonino scored a pair of goals as the Penguins took Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals, defeating Nashville, 5-3. The Predators played without Colin Wilson, who is injured. Bonino scored late in the first period and added an empty-netter late in the third. He has four playoff goals.
