Cole Eiserman, a projected top 3 pick in the 2024 NHL draft, is headed to Boston University, per a post on his Instagram account.

The news of Eiserman’s commitment came just over an hour after Evan Marinofsky of The New England Hockey Journal reported that the Newburyport, Mass. native would decommit from the University of Minnesota, and play college hockey closer to home. 

Eiserman, PuckPreps’ third-ranked 2006-born skater, spent last season playing with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program. He tallied 72 points in 40 games with the U17 team, and 36 points in 20 games with the U18 squad. He’ll join the Terriers for the 2024-25 season.

Before his time on the USNTDP program, Eiserman played at high school hockey powerhouse Shattuck St. Mary’s in Minnesota, where he played alongside BU freshman Macklin Celebrini, the projected first overall selection in the 2024 NHL Draft and top-ranked 2006-born skater.

  1. This is huge for BU. Hopefully, it keeps Macklin C around for another year.
