Terriers land Minnesota-born goalie Oettinger

Boston University has added more depth to its goaltending future, with netminder Jake Oettinger committing to the school. The goalie announced the news on his Twitter account Sunday evening.

The 6-foot-3 Oettinger just finished a year with the U.S. National Under-17 Team, posting a .916 save percentage to go along with a 2.57 goals-against average. He also had three games with the U-18s, finishing with a 3-0 record.

This came after a 2013-14 season in which Oettinger put together a 1.86 goals-against average at Lakeville High School in Minnesota. He helped backstop the team to the Minnesota State Tournament Class 2A title game, earning all-tournament team honors.

Oettinger was part of the U.S. U-18 squad that won gold at the 2015 IIHF World Championship, though he did play in a game. The much-sought after recruit will be draft eligible in 2017.
