A goalie and a blueliner for 2021

Chris Heisenberg is reporting that Lac St. Louis right-shot defenseman Charles-Alexis Legault has committed to BU for 2021. The 6’3”, 190 lb. native of Pierrefonds, Quebec has 11 points (4G, 7A) in 14 games this season for the QMAAA Lions and also played for Canada White in the World U17 Challenge last month, scoring one goal.

He's the son of former Terrier blueliner Alex Legault, a second-round draft pick of Edmonton, who played for BU’s 1989-90 Frozen Four team and part of the 1990-91 season.

Legault had been considered a potential top-three pick for the 2019 QMJHL draft before a neck injury limited him to just two games with the Lions in 2018-19. Gatineau drafted him in the second round, #22 overall, with its general manager stating, “If he shows up with us, it will not be a home run, it will be a grand slam. He's back healthy.”

BU also has received a 2021 commitment from ’North Jersey Avalanche 16U goaltender Anton Castro. The 6’2” native of Mendota Heights, Minnesota is in his first season with the Avalanche, joining previous BU commits Devin Kaplan and Lane Hutson on the Avs' premier squad currently ranked third in US Midget 16U Tier 1.

Castro has a 2.00 GAA in the Avs’ AYHL games and a 1.88 GAA in the Beast Series, which matches elite midget teams in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. This week he was named to the All-Beast 2nd Team.  2022 recruits Kaplan and Hutson were selected to the 1st team, along with another Terrier 2022 recruit, Ryan Greene from Selects Academy 16U.

Last season, Castro played in the NAPHL for the Gentry Galaxy 15Us along with recent BU commit Jack Harvey. His league-leading 0.55 GAA and .963 save percentage earned  a spot on the league’s Elite Division all-star team.

Castro, who was drafted by the Fargo Force, played in last summer’s USA Hockey’s Select 16 Development Camp recording a 2.88 GAA in four games. He becomes the fifth Terrier recruit from the Avalanche organization. 2021 recruit Quinn Hutson skates for the U18s and earned second-team All Beast honors.  2021 recruit Jeremy Wilmer played for the 16Us last season (along with Kaplan and Quinn Hutson) and now skates for the USNTDP U17s.   

Looking ahead

2020 recruit Braden Doyle talked with USA Hockey about polishing his game with USHL Dubuque after playing the past two seasons at Lawrence Academy.  Earlier this month, the Lynnfield, Massachusetts native earned USHL Defenseman of the Week honors after recording a hat trick in a 5-2 win.
