Fall of 2016 Arrival
- 5'9 forward out of Washington DC. Son of Washington Capitals GM George McPhee (who played for Coach York at Bowling Green). 7 points in 24 games played for the NTDP U18 team so far this season. Very smart player, always playing a fast style of hockey, and does the little things really well. Should be a great three or four year guy.
- 6'1 forward for the Waterloo Blackhawks, former Cushing Academy Forward. 17 points in 23 games played this season. Born in Texas. Led the New England Prep league in scoring last season with 27 goals and 42 assists. Although he is big in size and stature, he moves well for a big man. Highly skilled with a terrific shot. A 6th round draft pick of the Carolina Hurricanes.
- 5'10 defenseman for the Youngstown Phantoms (USHL). 10 points in 27 games played. Haven't seen many players improve as much over two years than Moore has. Although he isn't the biggest player on the ice, he is an excellent skater with a bomb of a shot. Could probably play power play and penalty kill early on in his BC career. Could be a steal of a recruit for the staff down the road.
- 5'11 defenseman for the Youngstown Phantoms (USHL). 11 points in 26 games played. Smooth skating, puck moving defenseman that was ranked the 11th best uncommitted prospect on Over the Boards. Son of assistant coach Marty McInnis.
- 6'1 forward from Boise, Idaho (will be first ever Eagle from that state). Currently on USNTDP U18 team. 5 goals and 1 assist in 26 games played. Formerly played for the Colorado Thunderbirds. Great sized forward that possesses a lot of speed and explosiveness. If his development continues as projected, he will be a big time player. Was the 7th ranked uncommitted prospect at the time of his commitment in July 2014.
- 6'2, 194 defenseman from Pointe-Claire, Quebec and the US National Development Program (U17). Primarily a stay at home defenseman that is raw but possess a strong skating game. He was ranked 3rd in HockeyProspects.com's QMJHL rankings. Will play a big role in revamping what is sure to be a different looking BC defense in the fall of 2016.
- 6'2 goaltender from the USNTDP U18 team. 1.67 GAA and .935 save percentage in 11 games played. Highly touted recruit that has a lot of potential to be a top goaltender in college hockey. Played for St Louis Blues midget major team before NTDP where he had a 1.71 GAA in 18 games played. From Missouri
- 5'10 defenseman from Finland- has recorded 16 points in 28 games played as of his commitment in early February. Was on the Finnish World Jr Camp roster, notched 23 points last season. Described as a smaller blue liner who can skate and distribute the puck, much like Moore and McInnis. Projected to be a late pick in the 2016 NHL draft.
- 5'11 forward for the South Shore Kings (USPHL)- has recorded 37 points in 39 games played this season and won MVP of the USPHL all star game earlier this winter. Those who have seen him play say he is a smaller forward that is a terrific skater and deadly shot for a guy his size.
- 5'10 forward from Finland- brother Jesper committed to BC in February. Julius recorded 56 points in 46 regular season games for the Ilves U20 team. He followed that up with an outstanding postseason, notching 8 points in 7 games played. Finnish scout Marco Bombino describes Julius as "a skilled forward who is tenacious and competes hard, nice addition for BC". Both Mattila brothers have an outside chance of being drafted as Julius was ranked 115th on the final Central Scouting rankings for European skaters, while his brother was 83rd.
- 6'0 goalie from Lakeville, Minnesota and a former Gopher recruit. Led Lakeville to a state championship in 2015 with a 1.43 GAA and .937 save percentage before heading to the Madison Capitols of the USHL. In his first and only season with Madison, Edquist posted a 3.02 GAA and .906 save percentage, which landed him on the all rookie team.
- 6'0 forward out of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and the Aston Rebels (NAHL). Led his team in scoring with 24 goals and 31 assists. Also notched 6 points in 8 playoff games. Played for the Coquitlam Express in 2014-15 where he garnered 17 points in 34 games. Was ranked one of the top uncommitted prospects in North America by Over the Boards in 2014- they described him as "a forward who plays with a lot of intensity and just makes things happen."
- A 5'10, 1995 birthdate out of Philadelphia, Greco will give BC some much needed experience and depth after three solid seasons in the USPHL with the Philadelphia Flyers. He followed up his productive rookie season with 49 points in 2015 before notching 57 in 2016. Greco may not get a ton of time freshman year but look for him to become an important role player as the years go on.
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.
- 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.
Fall of 2019-
- 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.
- Arguably the top 2001 forward in the country. Described as the type of guy who creates instant offense, Moynihan currently leads the Neponset Valley River Rats in scoring. He will suit up for Noble and Greenough this winter as a freshman.
