Goaltender Drew Hotte commits to BU, another recruit for upcoming season

The recruits keep coming in for the Boston University men’s hockey team. It has been confirmed by the North American Hockey League that goaltender Drew Hotte has committed to BU and will play in the upcoming 2017-18 season.

The 20-year-old most recently stood between the pipes for the Johnstown Tomahawks (NAHL), but previously played in the United States Hockey League for the Waterloo Black Hawks and Madison Capitols.

During the 2016-17 season, Hotte posted a .913 goal save percentage, 2.43 goals against average and a 24-12-1 record with the Tomahawks. He also set the team record for the most wins during a single season.


Jake Witkowski commits to BU

It’s never too late to add another recruit to the 2017-18 Boston University men’s hockey roster, which already has players such as Shane Bowers and Ty Amonte. This afternoon Jake Witkowski tweeted his commitment to Boston University and is eligible to play this coming season as per Elite Prospects.

The forward played four seasons at Malden Catholic High before playing one year at Avon Old Farms School where he tallied 40 points (13g, 27a) in 27 games. Rising sophomore Patrick Harper, one of the leading goal-scorers during the 2016-17 season, was also a product of Avon Old Farms.

Witkowski most recently played one season for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in the BCHL. The 20-year-old played 58 games and amassed 40 points, however, found the back of the net 23 times.

The Melrose, Mass. native looks to be a nice addition to the Terriers and will add more depth to the strong offense in the upcoming season.
