A couple of notes to share before Thursday's big game in Tampa Bay. The team left via charter this afternoon after a short send-off outside of Conte Forum.
BC had three recruits named to the United States' U18 World Championships roster. Zach Walker, Graham McPhee, and Joe Woll will all be representing their country April 14-24 in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The red, white, and blue will be seeking their third consecutive title after Colin White scored the game winner in overtime a season ago.
One of their 2000 recruits, TJ Walsh, tendered with the Cedar Rapids Rough Riders of the USHL this afternoon. The Cushing Academy forward recently tried out for the National Development Program but it appears as if he did not make the cut. The tender indicates that Walsh will be heading to Iowa next season.
