Forward Trevor Zegras commits to Boston University

Chalk up another win for the Boston University men’s hockey team and head coach David Quinn on the recruiting trail.

Trevor Zegras, a prized forward born in 2001, announced via Twitter Monday morning that he’ll one day wear the scarlet and white.

There’s little information about Zegras online, but he is bound for the Avon Old Farms School come fall. That’s the same Connecticut preparatory school that produced Patrick Harper, an incoming BU freshman selected in the fifth round of the 2016 NHL Draft by the Nashville Predators.

According to numerous sources on Twitter, Zegras recently lit up the Chowder Cup, a nationally-renowned youth hockey tournament held in Massachusetts.

Zegras’ committment also gives BU four prized recruits born in 2001, as he joins forward Robert Mastrosimone and defensemen Braden Doyle and Case McCarthy. Without further ado, here are some reactions from those in the know about Zegras’ decision.



  1. Looks like about 20 months ago, USHR labeled him an “A” forward. He seems like an all-around stud and a likely candidate for the USNTDP. Welcome Trevor!


  2. Congrats and welcome to BU

  3. And this guy’s my homey … from Westchester County, NY! Cool!
