It's hard to believe that the Eagles will be back on the ice Saturday night for the first time after a devastating loss to Union in Frozen Four. I think it's going to be another year filled with excitement, wins, and at times, moments where the team is going to have to fight through some difficult adversity. Anyways, I stated last week that I'm trying to really promote the recruiting aspect of the blog so my goal is to write at least one, hopefully two, recruiting articles a week. Most of the time, such as tonight, they will be updates about how guys are performing. The season is young but both the USHL teams and the USNTDP have kicked off their season.
Class of 2015
Jeremy Bracco- Leads the U18 team with 4 goals and 8 assists through 7 games, also added three points at the All-American prospect game last Thursday up in Buffalo. Still very much up in the air as to if he will ever end up at BC but if he does, he will be an absolute stud.
Colin White- Fifth on the U18 team with 4 goals and 4 assists through 7 games. Like Bracco, he also played in the AA prospect game last week. Certainly the best all around player in the pipeline. Plays a style very similar to Patrice Bergeron.
Casey Fitzgerald- Has only played four games for the U18 team, has recorded 2 points so far. Played in All American prospect game as well.
Joey Dudek- His Dubuque Fighting Saints have only played one game thus far, so nothing to report.
Chris Brown- Same as Dudek, just one game played for the Green Bay Gamblers.
Miles Wood- Nobles doesn't start until Thanksgiving time but I can tell you he recorded 8 points vs a team that I coach last weekend. He beat us 10-2. Yup.
Chris Shero- Playing for Scott Harlow and his South Shore Kings,0 points in 7 games.
Class of 2016-
Graham McPhee- Fourth on the U17 team with 1 point though two games.
Zachary Walker- Also on the U17 team but suffered a bad lower body injury. Assume he is out for some time.
Luke McInnis- Don't have stats in front of me but playing for a loaded Cape Cod Whalers squad coached by former Eagle Andrew Orpik. They won their first tournament two weeks ago.
David Cotton- I got nothing
Connor Moore- Playing 1st D pair with recruiting target Jacob Bryson on the #1 ranked team in the country, the U18 Neponset Valley River Rats. They won the Labor Day Tournament final vs the Whalers.
That's all I got.
