Bowers signs with Avs; O'Connell addresses departures

Shane Bowers became the fifth underclassman to turn pro, signing a three-year entry-level contract with Colorado, beginning with the 2019-2020 season. He’ll join the Avs’ AHL team, after signing an ATO with the Colorado Eagles. Bowers, a Hockey East All-Rookie selection as a freshman, had 21 points last season. Originally drafted #27 overall by Ottawa, his rights were acquired by the Avs in November, 2017.

Head Coach Albie O’Connell talked with CHN’s Mike McMahon about the five early departures, most of which had been anticipated “for two seasons” The three juniors who turned pro—Dante Fabbro, Chad Krys and Jake Oettinger—will earn their degrees this summer. O’Connell noted, “Each one of the juniors were offered contracts last year and decided to come back to BU. They've all taken summer courses and they're all leaving with their degree.
