THN talks Tkachuk; future Terriers shine for U17s

The Hockey News’ Prospect Podcast features Ryan Kennedy’s comments on Terrier Freshman Brady Tkachuk.

"He’s a Tkachuk, he’s a pain to play against, he’s a load to handle, he goes to the dirty areas and he can get those greasy goals for you. He has nice offensive skills, he’s got hands and will be a terrific net-front presence. A top-5 player for 2018."
