After missing out on top recruit Dante Fabbro, the staff was in need of a fourth defenseman for next year's recruiting class. It appears as if they have found their man. 1995 birthdate Michael Kim out of the Boston Jr Bruins committed to BC this morning. Kim, a Toronto native, has recorded twenty three points in twenty games for BC alum Peter Masters' squad, which is good for ninth among all league players. Masters described his top blue liner as "a gifted skater and smooth two-way defenseman." Kim was Josh Couturier's partner last season.
This is one of those low risk additions but in all honesty, nobody knows what BC's defense will look like a year from now. Doherty is obviously gone, McCoshen will likely sign with Florida, but I think there is a solid chance Santini returns for his senior season. They bring in four guys, all with very different skill sets. Luke McInnis and Connor Moore are a tad undersized but they're both terrific skaters that will help move the puck of the ice. Mike Campoli, perhaps the best player in the incoming class, is a stay at home guy who plays similar to Santini. I have not seen Kim play so I won't pretend I know a lot about him.
UNH preview tomorrow. Go Eagles.
