The commitments just keep on coming for the Boston University men’s hockey team, as Canadian blue-liner Cam Crotty took to Twitter today to announce his commitment to BU. The 17-year-old is projected to join the Terriers next season.

Crotty, who is eligible for next year’s NHL draft, is a 6-foot-1, 172 pound defenseman currently with the Brockville Braves of the CCHL. He has one goal in seven games this season after recording 18 points in 57 games with the Braves last year, indicating his knack of contributing on the offensive end.
The Terriers have been extremely busy as of late adding recruits for the next couple of years, as they have picked up four commitments in less than a month. Defenseman Kasper Kotkansalo and forward Shane Bowers will likely join BU for the 2017-18 season, while 14-year-old Dylan Peterson is projected to arrive at Commonwealth Avenue in 2020.

It seems like this guy will be more of a shut-down d-man, to complement our many offensive-minded blue-liners.
