A pair of Minnesotans heading to BU; Harvey vs. The Turtle UPDATED


Terriers have added another high-end ’06 recruit to their pipeline, receiving a commitment from Shattuck St. Mary’s Prep forward Will Zellers. A 5’9” left-shot from Maple Grove, Minn., he made the jump to the Midwest powerhouse’s top-level squad after putting up a 37-42-79 line in 61 games for SSM’s15U AAA team last season. Zellers, a skilled playmaker with finishing ability, is one of three ‘06s to make the school’s 18U roster.

Puck Preps Tweeted:

Boston University gets another massive commitment in 4 2006 recruit Will Zellers as per his IG. Zellers has been a recent high riser in our rankings and was one of only a few 2006s to make Shattuck’s Prep team this season. A big get for the Terriers.

Gabe Foley, head NA scout for Recruit Scouting, added

Huge commitment! Zellers is yet another STUD in the current SSM system. He dominates every summer camp he shows up to, clearly showing we aren't giving him enough love. Huge add to an already strong BU class.

A strong performance in the USA Hockey Select 16 Development Camp earned Zellers a spot on the US Select U17 team that played in the Five Nations Cup in Colorado Springs last month. In four games, he led all players in points (9) and goals (7).

In May, he was selected #18 overall in the USHL Futures Draft by Green Bay.

Zellers is the sixth highly regarded ’06 to commit to BU in the past two months, joining Owen Keefe, Kamil Bednarek, Cole Hutson, Cal Hughes, and Macklin Celebrini, who last season also made the jump from SSM 15U to the Prep 18U squad and led the team in scoring.

Looking ahead

and continuing the Minnesota to BU theme...

2023 recruit Jack Harvey can shoot the puck. The Stacy, Minn., left wing scored 26 goals last season for the Chicago Steel. Now, he reveals some comedic acting skills.


Looking back

Former Terrier standout and NHL star Tony Amonte has stepped down as head coach at Thayer Academy and will become a pro scout for the Florida Panthers. He scored 126 points in 79 games as a Terrier helping to lead BU to the 1990 Frozen Four and the 1991 national championship game. His son Tristan Amonte is a Terrier sophomore, while brother Ty Amonte will conclude his college career at UConn. 

Women’s Team

Coach Brian Durocher also found recruiting success in Minnesota, getting a commitment from Stillwater H.S. junior defenseman Addy Finn for 2024-25. Following her sophomore season she participated in the USA Hockey Select 15 Development Camp, leading all defensemen with seven points in five games.
