Inside BU Hockey: Quinn, Oettinger; Roberto turns the page

Episode 5 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, freshman goalie Jake Oettinger and Northeastern radio announcer Rob Rudnick.

Named Hockey East’s co-Goalie of the Month for October, Oettinger arrived at BU after two successful seasons with USA Hockey’s NTDP, including a gold medal in the 2015 World U18 Championships.  Previously he led Lakeville North to the Minnesota large-school championship game against current teammate Kieffer Bellow’s Edina squad.

Rudnick has been handling the play by play duties at Northeastern hockey since 1977 and is the longest tenured play by play voice at any school in Hockey East.

The Daily Free Press presents a pair of excellent player profiles: Jonathan Sigal describes how senior Nick Roberto (photo) has turned the page on his junior campaign, while Nick Frazier looks at the impressive impact of freshman Patrick Harper.’s Draft Watch checks in with Oettinger, who has a 1.42 GAA and .947 save percentage after five games. Expected to be among the first goalies selected in next June’s NHL Entry Draft, he is ranked #29 by Future Considerations and #31 by Sportsnet.

"There's a lot to like about his game," Central Scouting's Al Jensen said. "He's a big goalie (6-foot-4, 212 pounds). Covers a lot of the net. His positional play is very good. Got a phenomenal butterfly, great rebound control. He's got that NHL net presence when you look at him."

SB Nation's Jeff Cox talked with sophomore Jordan Greenway (photo) about his determination to become more of a goal scorer this season. As a freshman he finished with an impressive 26 points, but only five came on goals. With three goals in the last four games, Greenway is beginning to assert himself as a finisher.

Looking ahead
2019 recruit Joel Farabee scored a late power play goal but Team USA’s rally fell short with Sweden claiming a 4-3 quarterfinal win in the World U17 Challenge in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. Farabee has scored in each of Team USA’s four games including two game-winners. 2018 recruit Jake Wise, who scored twice in the preliminary round, assisted on Team USA’s second goal. With six points in the tournament, Farabee leads the NTDP U17s in scoring with 12 (6G, 6A).
