McCarthy impresses at Devils camp; schedule due out, roster to follow; All-Academic teams announced

BU will announce the full 2019-20 schedule this week and, during the week of July 22, will introduce the incoming recruit class and post the full roster with numbers.

Five Terriers were named to the Hockey East All-Academic Team: Co-captain Bobo Carpenter, Mark Cheremeta, Max Prawdzic and Vinny Purpura.

● report

Incoming freshman Case McCarthy has opened some eyes at Devils development camp. OverTheBoards observed:

Case McCarthy — Watching him this season with the NTDP was nowhere near as enlightening as seeing him here, especially in the four-on-four play. McCarthy is a decently-sized right-shooting defenseman who can be a tough out in his own end, but there were flashes of legit offensive upside to his game. I don’t know if that will be his role at Boston University this season (or the next), but it was exciting to see that.

McCarthy will be on the USA White roster at the WJSS, along with Alex Vlasic and Trevor Zegras. Joel Farabee will be on the USA Blue roster. Robert Mastrosimone, who broke an ankle at Red Wings development camp, will miss the WJSS.

Looking ahead

NEHJ’s Jeff Cox reports that 2021 recruit Artem Shlaine had a strong performance at the USA Hockey Select 17 Development Camp, which earned him a spot on the US U18 Select team for the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup:

4. Artem Shlaine

#10 Navy, Shattuck St. Mary’s, 3/7/02, C, Left Shot, 6-1/165 NCAA Commit: Boston University

Shlaine’s stock has risen tremendously over the past two years, which earned him a commitment to BU. He had a great start to the camp and seemingly was all over the puck in the first three games. He gets to pucks with a good first step and isn’t afraid to go to the greasy areas. He gets a lot of shots and has zip on his release. Shlaine projects as a second or third round pick in next June’s NHL Draft.

Looking back Joel Farabee determined to make Flyers

Alex Chiasson, who signed a new two-year, $2.15 million contract with Edmonton, says he received support in the negotiations from Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, noting: “Those guys want me to be a part of the next couple of years, and it was kind of how I felt with the organization, so the rest was negotiations,” Chiasson said. Clearly, the Oilers felt Chiasson brought more to the table than just the 22 goals he scored last season. Edmonton news

Congratulations to David Warsofsky’s brother, Ryan, named head coach of the AHL Charlotte Checkers. A Curry College grad, he was assistant coach last season as the Checkers won the Calder Cup.
