Junior Bruin Kevin Duane commits to BU for ’13

By Tim Healey/DFP Staff

In keeping with its recent trend, Boston University has secured another commitment from a New England native for the fall of 2013, this time from New Canaan, Conn. native Kevin Duane, according to USHR.

A 6-foot-4, 215-pound right winger, Duane racked up 33 points (15 goals and 18 assists) with Brunswick Academy during the 2010-11 season before being selected 157th overall by the Quebec Remparts in the QMJHL draft. He will be a senior at Brunswick this year, and plans on playing with the Des Moines Buccaneers of the USHL before coming to BU.

Duane has also been a part of the Boston Junior Bruins program. Duane is the fifth 2013 recruit to come from New England, joining right winger Robbie Baillargeon (Enfield, Conn.), forward Danny O’Regan (Needham), and forward Brendan Collier and defenseman Matt Grzelcyk (Charlestown).

  1. I read in a BC blog that York attempted to tell Hayes and Atkinson that they weren’t “pro ready” and should stay another year at BC. That seems to me to be looking out for himself instead of the well being of the kids. I watched them both this year and they seemed ready to make the transition

  2. He should come to Québec to play against real opposition.

    Wasting his time in a prep as a 17yo and a USHL year.

    He’d play top minutes in Québec in the spotlights of the scout coming over to see Grigorenko, Duclair, Erne.
