BU gets commitment from ’99 defenseman Cam Crotty

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.

Here are some more tweets regarding Crotty.

 

Top prospect Shane Bowers commits to BU

The star-studded prospects just keep on coming for BU head coach David Quinn and the Boston University men’s hockey team.

After receiving a commitment from Dylan Peterson yesterday, USHL center and top 2017 NHL draft prospect Shane Bowers tweeted out his commitment to BU today. Bowers, 17, is one of seven Terrier commits eligible to play next season.

The Canadian-born Bowers is currently in the midst of his second year with the Waterloo Black Hawks of the USHL. He has five goals and four assists through nine games played. The 6-foot, 170 pound center also played for the Canada Under-18 squad in the Hlinka Memorial Cup this year, scoring once in four games.

Bowers is known for his limitless potential and playmaking on the offensive end. With the current Terriers’ squad stacked on offense, it looks like Bowers should have no problem fitting right in on Commonwealth Avenue next season. Here are some more reactions on Bowers’ decision.

Defenseman Kasper Kotkansalo commits to Boston University

The 2016-17 season may be underway, but that doesn’t mean that Terrier head coach David Quinn and his staff aren’t still recruiting.

The Terriers seem to have landed another big name, as Jeff Cox of SB Nation tweeted out that ’98 defenseman Kasper Kotkansalo has committed to Boston University. He will be eligible to join the Terriers as early as next season.

The 6-foot-2, 190 pound blue-liner is currently playing with the Sioux Falls Stampede in the USHL. It is his first year playing hockey in North America. Kotkansalo, who is a top prospect for next year’s NHL Draft, also won a gold medal with his native Finland team in the U18 World Junior Championship last year, notching four assists and a plus/minus rating of +5 in six games.

Kotkansalo is a hard-hitting defenseman with offensive upside, totaling 19 points in 48 games with Blues U20 of Jr. A SM-Liiga in Finland last season. Current BU defenders Charlie McAvoy and Dante Fabbro are known for contributing on both ends, so it seems that Quinn and his staff may have a preference for defenders who can score points on any given night.
