Fall of 2017-
- Small but highly skilled forward from Rochester, New York. Currently plays for the USNTDP U17 team and is one of the top scorers with 16 points in 22 games played. OHL rights are held by the Kitchener Rangers (ya, those guys) so it will be a battle getting him to campus. If he gets here, he could be the next great small forward.
- 5'8 forward from Long Island, New York. Recorded 8 points in 8 games at Nationals in March, 7 points in 21 games played for the Green Bay Gamblers (USHL) so far this season. The staff could hold him back until the fall of 2018 depending on what happens between now and then.
- 5'11 forward out of Thayer Academy, will play for Tri City Storm (USHL) in 2016-16, recorded 16 goals and 21 assists for Tony's Tigers in 2014-15. Should be a solid four year guy at BC, hopefully can blossom into a Ben Smith type player.
- 6'2 forward out of the USNTDP and California- has notched 10 points in 22 games played for the U17 team. Big, strong power forward who has a solid stride and a lot of potential. Recorded 6 points in 5 games at the Select 16s tournament in July. Could develop into a big time prospect. Will be a high draft pick in 2017.
- 5'9 forward out of the USNTDP and New Jersey. Arguably the most skilled forward on the U17 squad, described as an instant offensive threat. Has recorded 12 points in 21 games so far this season. Notched 90 points in 45 games for Shattuck St Marys last season. Will be a high draft pick in 2017.
- 5'8 forward out of St. Andrews College (Canada), 1998 birthdate from Whitby, Ontario-has recorded 28 points in 28 games played thus far for David Manning's team. Small, but quick forward with terrific vision and high end offensive instinct. Scored 5 goals in the final game of the Road to College Showcase in the Summer of 2015.
- 5'10 forward out of Thayer Academy and Acushnet, Massachusetts. Took home ISL MVP honors and was first team all New England in 2016 after recording 34 goals and 37 assists. Skilled forward with a ton of speed, who will likely return to Thayer for his senior campaign before arriving on The Heights. 4th round draft pick of Drummoundville Voltigeurs of the QMJHL but there is a very small chance of him bolting to Canada.
- Perhaps the top incoming NCAA player in his draft class, Tolvanen, a Finland native, is small in stature but not when it comes to speed and skill. Many draft experts have him going midway through the first round in the 2017 draft, perhaps even within the top ten. He led both the 2016 U18 and U17 World Championships in scoring and was also named to the USHL first team all-rookie. Despite being one of the youngest players in the league, Tolvanen was second on his club in scoring with 38 points. Will be one of the top players in the country once he arrives on campus.
Fall of 2018
- Elite goal scorer from Cushing Academy after transferring from Shattuck.. Originally from Shrewsbury. Recorded 136 points in 66 games for Shattuck in 2014-15. Could accelerate to 2017 if he continues to develop. Will play for the Cedar Rapids Roughriders in 2017. One of BC's best forwards in the pipeline.
- 6'3 forward out of Maryland- has recorded 12 points in 11 games played for the Skipjacks Hockey Club so far this year. A solid skater for his enormous size, Giles has the potential to develop into a top end forward for the Eagles in a few year. Will play for the NTDP in 2017.
- Brother of former Eagle Philip Samuelsson, Adam is a 6'3 defenseman for the Connecticut Rangers U16 squad. Described as an imposing defender with a strong stride, Samuelsson has a certain amount of upside not generally seen in kids his age. Will play for the NTDP in 2017.
Fall of 2019-
Fall of 2020-
- 6'2 goalie out of Connecticut. Although he is just 14 years old, some consider him to be the top goaltender in North America for his age. Since he has not even started high school, I do not have any stats to share with you but he will certainly be a big piece of the puzzle when he arrives on campus.
- Described as the type of guy who creates instant offense, Moynihan currently leads the Neponset Valley River Rats in scoring. He will be a sophomore for Nobles in 2016-17 but I expect that he, like Knight and Helleson, will be a strong NTDP candidate.
- 6'0 forward out of South Windsor, Connecticut and the Salisbury School. Recorded 15 points in 26 games in 2016 but should see an increased role as a junior next winter. Consistently ranked as one of the top 2000's in New England, he was drafted in the fourth round of the USHL Draft by Sioux City. Also posted 4 points in 5 games at the Select 15's festival last summer.
- 5'11 defenseman out of Shattuck St. Mary's and Farmington, Minnesota. Recorded 34 points in 46 games last season for the national champion Sabres and is considered by many to be a top defensemen in his class. Described as a smooth skating, puck moving, player.
- A 5'9 defenseman out of Anaheim Hills, California, York is considered one of the best blue liners in his age group. He was the top defenseman in terms of points for National Champion Shattuck St Mary's this past season. The Sabres boasted a talented group defensemen in York, Drew Helleson (BC) and Braden Doyle (BU). US scout Matt Grainda says of York- "great patience, elite hockey sense, and strong skater".
Fall of 2020-
- Defenseman out of Hingham, Massachusetts. Committed at age 14 in the summer of 2016- plays for the Boston Advantage, coached by Tim Lovell. Described as a blue liner with size and under the radar speed. Look for him to develop into a top end prospect, but again, who knows what will happen with a kid so young.
