As you may have noticed, I have not been able to post much during the week, but that will change as the season goes on. Tonight, we will take a look at how BC's recruits are faring in their respective junior leagues all across the country.
David Cotton- The 6th round draft pick of the Carolina Hurricanes has recorded ten points in fourteen games for the Waterloo Blackhakws (USHL). Cotton will certainly compete for a top nine spot when he arrives next fall.
Graham McPhee- The son of former Capitals GM George McPhee has notched five points in sixteen games for the NTDP U18 squad. Most scouts project McPhee to be selected in rounds 4-6 of the NHL Draft.
Luke McInnis- After a solid season at Dexter, McInnis moved out to Youngstown (USHL) where he is paired with fellow recruit Connor Moore. He is off to a solid start this season, potting eight points in fourteen games.
Connor Moore- The top defenseman in prep hockey a year ago, Moore left the Brooks School in order to suit up for Youngstown (USHL). So far, the Cummings, Georgia native has five points in fourteen games.
Michael Campoli- A 6'2 defenseman out of Pointe-Claire, Quebec (same hometown as Mike Matheson) and the NTDP, Campoli is a stay at home blue liner who is not necessarily a major point producer. His style of play is similar to that of Steven Santini. Many pundits believe he will picked in the top three rounds of the NHL draft.
Joseph Woll- The Missouri native has split time in net with BU recruit Jake Oettinger for the NTDP, but is off to a nice start with a 1.90 goals against average and a .914 save percentage through seven games.
Zach Walker- The Boise, Idaho resident and NTDP forward has notched two goals in sixteen games thus far.
Monte Graham- The staff could hold back Graham one more year but the former Thayer Tiger has recorded one goal in fourteen games with the Tri-City Storm (USHL). He's one of the younger players in the league so it will take him some time to develop.
Joseph Cassetti- The 6'2 power forward out of California has posted seven points in fourteen games for the NTDP U17 team. At the U17 World Challenge, held just two weeks ago, Cassetti recorded three points in five games.
Jacob Tortora- Perhaps the next undersized superstar, Tortora, a 5'6 forward for the NTDP U17 team, has ten points in seventeen games this year. He was one of the top scorers for the US at the U17 World Challenge, recording five points in five games.
Logan Hutsko- BC's newest recruit out of North Caldwell, New Jersey is another top scorer for the NTDP U17 squad with eleven points in eighteen games thus far.
Chris Grando- Like Monte Graham, it is still in the air as to when Grando arrives in Chestnut Hill. The Islip, New York native has two points in nine games with the Green Bay Gamblers in 2015.
TJ Walsh- After transferring from Shattuck St Marys to Cushing Academy due to injury, Walsh has not yet begun skating. He will be one of the top players in the New England Prep circuit this winter.
Patrick Giles- The towering 6'3 forward (he's only fifteen years old) is off to a fantastic start for the Skipjacks Hockey Club (USPHL U16) with twelve points in eleven games.
Adam Samuelsson- Another big-time recruit, the 6'3 defenseman has seven points in twelve games for the Connecticut Jr Rangers.
Patrick Moynihan- No stats available since Nobles has not begun their season.
Spencer Knight- I could not find any stats online. That is not uncommon for a 2001 birthdate.
