While the Hockey East Tournament nears for the Boston University men’s hockey team, that doesn’t mean the coaching staff has turned a blind eye to the recruiting trail.
Rather, the Terriers, as first reported by SB Nation’s Jeff Cox, have secured the services of Liam Connors.
The 2001-born winger plays at the St. Sebastian’s School in nearby Needham, Massachusetts. Aged 16, Connors, per his Elite Prospects page, has also previously skated for the Boston Jr. Bruins and Neponset Valley River Rats.
While Connors won’t arrive on Commonwealth Avenue for several years, early word is he’s quite the talent.
St. Seb's RW Liam Connors committed to BU over the weekend. Small, but crafty/quick, feet are always moving, top 8 uncommitted '01 in NE.
