Five more Terriers—incoming and recruited—selected on Day 2.

The second day of the NHL’s Entry Draft proved another successful one for BU as three incoming defensemen were selected in the third round and one incoming forward and a 2018 blueliner heard their names called in the seventh round.

Finnish defenseman Kasper Kotkansalo, who played for Sioux Falls last season and won gold in the World Junior Championships, was selected by Detroit at #71.  Eleven picks later (#82) Arizona grabbed Cameron Crotty, the Brockville Braves defenseman voted the CCHL’s top prospect. NTDP U18 defenseman David Farrance went to Nashville at #92, joining sophomores Dante Fabbro and Patrick Harper as Predator draft picks.

Logan Cockerill, one of three BU freshmen, along with Farrance and Brady Tkachuk, who won gold in the World U18 Championship, was selected by the Islanders at #201. Two slots later, 2018 recruit Ryan O’Connell, a defenseman who will play in the BCHL for Penticton next season, was drafted by Toronto.

Of the sixty current and future NCAA players selected, seven are—or will be—Terriers. report
