Robert Polesello Update

The recent down-the-road-a-bit verbals BU received from Anthony DeAngelo and Adam Erne have capped off a year of impressive recruiting successes that began last August. That's when Toronto Jr. Canadians center Robert Polesello visited Agganis Arena and "made an on-the-spot commitment to the Terriers for the fall of ’12."

Since then, Polesello polished off another standout season, scoring 123 points for the Jr. Canadians and earning MVP honors ( photo with Don Cherry) for his team in the Greater Toronto Hockey League’s Top Prospects game. He was invited to Ontario’s Under 17 Provincial Camp in Oshawa earlier this month.

Polesello was drafted seventh overall in the USHL draft by the Indiana Ice—whose president compared him to St. Cloud State top-scorer Garrett Roe— and the OHL Kingston Frontenacs made him their fifth round pick, owing to his verbal to BU. However, the 1994-birthdate, left-shot center is expected to play for the Vaughan Vipers of the Junior A OPJHL this coming season.

Video interview with Polesello

► Sharks' top draft pick Charlie Coyle, a BU 2010 recruit, talked with radio play-by-play broadcaster Dan Rusanowsky at Sharks Ice at San Jose during the team's prospect camp.

►At the USA Hockey Select 15, 2014 recruit DeAngelo, found the back of the net all week, with six goals in five games, including a hattrick on Tuesday. His 6-3-9 scoring line was best among d-men and tied for sixth overall. Adam Erne finished with 0-2-2.

Camping in HockeyTown’s George Malik, assessing prospects at Redwings Development Camp, sees a strong upside for sophomore defenseman Max Nicastro, and hopes to see continued development for him at BU. Malik's detailed analysis projects that “if Nicastro continues to improve in terms of his skating, strength, consistency and simply learning one of the hardest positions to play well,” he is potentially a top-four NHL blueliner.

Looking back
Bryan Miller, a former first team All Hockey East defenseman, will return to the ECHL Alaska Aces for a fourth season. A power play standout, Miller racked up 79 points during the past two seasons.
