Report: Terriers land defenseman Patrick MacGregor for upcoming season

By Scott McLaughlin/DFP Staff

Jack Parker said he “had a couple guys on the line” that he could get if and when Kevin Shattenkirk and Colby Cohen decided to go pro. We now know who one of those guys is.

The Terriers have landed Avon Old Farms defenseman Patrick MacGregor for the upcoming season, according to US Hockey Report.

MacGregor, who will be 20 when the 2010-11 season commences, is a 6-foot-4, 210-pound right shot from Hamden, Conn.

Heralded for his size, strength and defensive-zone awareness, MacGregor had three goals and 18 assists this season to help lead Avon to its eighth New England Prep championship.

If Avon Old Farms sounds familiar, that’s because former Terrier turned Anaheim Duck Nick Bonino went there. Boston College’s Cam Atkinson, Tommy Atkinson and Pat Mullane all attended Avon as well.
