Recruit and Prospect Ratings

NHL Central Scouting has released its preliminary ratings of 2007 draft eligible players to watch. Those selected get either an A or B rating. Defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk (NTDP U18s) and Colby Cohen (Lincoln Stars) both received A ratings, while forward Nick Bonino (Avon Old Farms) had a B rating. Colin Wilson has a late birthdate and is not eligible for the 2007 draft.

Among some of the prospects BU is pursuing, Salisbury forward Paul Carey received an A rating and Nobles winger Andrew Glass received a B rating.

Cohen has been thriving since leaving the NTDP U18s and joining the USHL Lincoln Stars. He has scored 4 goals in his first four games, including a hattrick (plus an assist) this past weekend in a 7-5 win.

Shattenkirk and Wilson are in Sweden this week as the U18s participate in the 4 Nations Tournament. Through 16 games Wilson is 2nd in team scoring and Shattenkirk is 4th. The team, now 12-4, recently swept a pair of games in upstate New York, beating Clarkson and SUNYPlattsburgh.
