Looking ahead
2015 recruit Maxim Letunov has had his NHL rights traded from St. Louis to Arizona. The center from Moscow is third in the USHL scoring race with a 22-31-53 line. Coyotes GM Don Maloney:

"Maxim is a big, skilled center with excellent upside. He will play at Boston University next season who do a great job developing players."

2016 recruit Ryan Cloonan scored an unassisted goal for the USPHL Junior Bruins in a 5-1 playoff win over South Shore. However, the Kings won the deciding game, ending the Junior Bruins’ season.

2017 recruit David Farrance was named to the New York State roster for the USA Hockey Select 15 camp. The left-shot defenseman, who led the Syracuse Stars 16Us with 52 points (27G, 25A) in the regular season plus two more goals in the playoffs, also is expected to attend the NTDP evaluation camp.

2018 recruit Jake Wise leads Central Catholic with 36 points (14G, 22A). In a preview  of CC's playoff series with Austin Prep, SB Nation’s Jeff Cox wrote:

Any discussion on Central's top player starts and ends with '00 freshman Jake Wise, a Boston University commit. Many observers have had him pegged as the region's next Jack Eichel before he even played a high school game. He's stood out for years since he and his team shined in the prestigious Quebec pee-wee tournament.

Wise is a strong kid for his age who is very good on his skates. He skates well and cuts extraordinarily well. He's got that explosive first stride and that extra burst when he needs to get around an opponent. He's got a heavy shot and the offensive creativity usually only seen in kids who have a few years on him.

Looking back
Nick Bonino scored his 12th goal of the season and then scored in the shootout as Vancouver edged St. Louis, 6-5.

Women’s Team
The 2015 Hockey East tournament semifinal pairings are set. #2-seed Terriers will take on #3 Northeastern, while #1 BC meets #5 Connecticut next Saturday in Hyannis.

Junior Kayla Tutino, who set a Hockey East tournament record with four goals in BU’s 8-1 win over Vermont in game 1 of the Hockey East quarterfinals, earned the conference’s Warrior Player of the Week honors. She also had a goal and an assist in BU’s 7-2 win over the Catamounts in game 2.. Freshman forward Victoria Bach and sophomore goalie Victoria Hanson were named to the top performers list for the week.
