Looking ahead

2020 recruit Luke Tuch scored on a breakaway at 1:40 of overtime to give the NTDP U17s a 4-3 win over the Johnstown Tomahawks and Team USA’s first victory of the season. The 6’1” power forward from Baldwinsville, NY scored 62 points last season for the Junior Sabres 16Us.

● USA Hockey recap

2021 recruits Danil Zhilkin and Roman Schmidt (with trophy) were among the top scorers at the Toronto Titans Early Bird Tournament. Toronto Marlboros forward Zhilkin was fourth with 12 points (9G, 3A) in six games, while Schmidt, a defenseman for tournament champion Don Mills Flyers Minor Midget AAA, was seventh—and top-scoring blueliner—with 10 points (6G, 4A) in eight games. Commenting on the 6’4” Schmidt, TheScout.ca tweeted:

It was easy to see why too. Has an impressive knack for getting his point shot to the net, doing so as well as any defenseman in recent years. Gets his wrister off very quickly from any position with threatening, effortless velocity.

Looking back

The Bruins leave today for China where they’ll play a pair of exhibition games against Calgary. Former Terrier All-American Charlie McAvoy is looking forward to visiting The Great Wall, but more importantly hopes the trip will prove a bonding experience for the team.
