One of the biggest recruiting needs for BC in the near future has always been the question of who will replace Thatcher Demko in net? As of now, the Eagles have one goaltender in the pipeline, Chris Birdsall who struggeled over the course of his first USHL season with the Cedar Rapid Rough Riders. He has since been traded to the Youngstown Phantoms.
Yesterday, top 1997 goalie Michael Lackey, a USNTDP product and former Princeton commit, visited BC. It appeared Lackey enjoyed his visit as he posted a picture of him with former Eagles Parker Milner and Cory Schneider. Lackey is a 6'2 netminder from Washington DC, he recorded a 13-13 recorded with a 3.51 GAA for the U17 team this winter.
According to sources, the two finalist for Lackey's services are Boston College and Harvard.
