    Three year degrees have been quite the thing at BU lately. (O'Connor, Baillargeon, LaCouvee, Greenway)
    It's more attainable now that the players arrive on campus during the Summer leading into Freshman year, take 2 courses, and stay on campus for both Summer Terms. If one's taking a full course load during each Fall & Spring semester (and assuming they don't drop any courses), they should meet their degree requirements following the Summer Term leading into what would've been their Sr. year.

    In some cases, if one matriculates at BU as an older Freshman, it's presumable that he may have already completed some courses elsewhere while playing Juniors that transferred appropriately over to BU.

      He is also on schedule to get his degree in three-years.
      And unless Minnesota is handing him a roster spot, it makes sense to continue his development. And they still sign him after next season.
      I understand Greenway said it himself, well aware of that. Just pointing out that a well respected reporter in Minnesota said that that was news to the Wild. I wouldn't call it a slam dunk that Greenway is back. Guy made it seem like the Wild want to sign him and will talk to him about it.

        Or AP credits, if they are clever.

          Does this mean he didn't make the USNTDP?

            I believe so. The only other player that signed a tender was Trevor Kuntar who did not make the USNDT (was not invited).

              Appears he was borderline participating at NTDP evaluation camp after recovering from a broken leg. Jeff Cox ranked Mastrosimone #10 among the forwards in his camp review. Another camp observer thought he looked a bit rusty. He was also ranked among the top 20 on several OHL draft lists, although he eventually went in the 9th round to Missasauga, the same team that drafted Trevor Zegras.

              Regardless, it's highly likely that both forwards will become NHL draft picks, which we've now learned is very bad for the BU program.

                In CHN story, BC recruit calls BU recruit Bowers from USHL the hardest forward to play against:
                Interestingly enough, Karow was quick to heap praise on a future college rival when asked who the hardest forward to play against was this past season.

                [Boston University recruit] Shane Bowers, said Karow. He combines his size and skill level. He uses his body positioning to protect the puck. Hes the best forward weve played against.

                • I was looking at some U18 World Championship box scores. Who is Braeden Tkachuk? Or is that just his real name?

                  Edit: Yeah, I guess it's him. Just didn't look the same in a picture and thought maybe there was a third one.

                    Watched the U18 semifinals and championship game and all the future Terrier performed quite well. Tkachuk, not surprisingly, combined a high hockey IQ with a bulldog determination (and size) to win puck battles. He should certainly compete for a top six spot next fall, along with Bowers. Cockerill has Cloonan-like speed and hopefully is a better finisher. Made a slick drop pass to send Farabee in for a short-handed goal. Dogged penalty killer. Farrance's game is similar to Krys's--talented skater and puck-mover, strong shot, won physical battle despite being under six feet tall. Farabee won't arrive until 2018. He's a natural goal scorer whose already being mentioned as a potential first-round pick for 2018. Tkachuk is being mentioned as a top 10 pick for 2018.

                      Three guys made the U-17s (Zegras, Vlasic, McCarthy), one other turned apparently down the offer (Cade Webber).

                        Jeff Cox/CHN feature on 2017 recruit Shane Bowers. Projected to be a late first-round pick in the June draft and headed to next month's NHL Combine. http://www.collegehockeynews.com/new...s-Key-Part.php

                          Feature story on 2018 recruit Tyler Weiss, who was second in scoring for the NTDP U17s behind Joel Farabee.

                            I think it is interesting that Cade Webber was selected #5 in the USHL draft. If he wanted to play in the USHL, seems to me he wouldn't have turned down the USNDTP offer. In that program you play USHL teams while also getting to represent your country in international tournaments.

                                Obviously way too early to know, but he doesn't seem to be quite in the same group as Eichel or Keller were. Bowers' game seems to be one where he is solid in all aspects of the game, maybe more like JFK. So while he of course could be a one-and-done, it seems premature to think that it is the most likely outcome. As has been posted, there are far fewer one-and-dones versus two and dones at least in BUs history.
