    Purpura is expected to be a 2019 recruit, but if Oettinger was to leave (perish the thought ), he could arrive next fall. BU was a competitor for the BCHL's top goalie, Ty Taylor, who committed to UNH. BU reportedly wanted him for 2019. He'll attend UNH next fall.
    Are we trying to make the UNH fans suicidal? I think taking Commesso from them is probably enough...

    Related - what are the odds that BU finds a really good starting goalie that is willing to come to potentially have one year without either Oettinger and Commesso here?

      I might be confused with my years, but isn't Rogie saying that is what Purpura is for?

I think that was a big mistake on his part. Stupid Don Sweeney. Why the hell did he convince JFK to leave and then keep him in Providence?? What a disaster.
        Signing bonus and still gets paid reasonably well to play hockey even in the AHL. Can still develop down there. And they let him burn a year off his ELC to get to RFA one year sooner which is a huge carrot they dangle in front of these kids. CBA is killing college hockey right now. Sure it's a free place to stash a kid for development but GMs just don't want to chance having these kids take off on them and lose their picks like say a Brian Boyle or a Blake Wheeler (I believe they get compensatory picks but if they like their pick post-draft why chance another unknown prospect?)

        The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

          Think BU has already done that, grabbing likely first-rounder Farabee when he decommitted from UNH. Going back awhile, I believe Pete MacArthur was originally headed to Durham. Probably others, too.

            I'm probably wrong here but is he really developing all that much? If he was tearing up the AHL, we would know.

              Jeff Cox is reporting that 2020 recruits Drew Commesso (goalie, St. Sebastian's) and Luke Tuch (wing, Jr. Sabres 16U) are among the early players confirmed to have made next year's NTDP U17s. Commesso is one of two Massachusetts players confirmed. The other is Milton Academy freshman Matt Beniers, considered a top prospect with BU, BC, Harvard, Northeastern and Providence all recruiting him.

                JFK has been out for a long stretch with a bad concussion.

                  3 dual (US/Canada) citizens were offered spots by NTDP:
                  - Thomas Bordeleau, F, College Esther-Blondin
                  - Dylan Peterson, F, CIHA White (BU)
                  - Jake Sanderson, D, Edge School 15s (North Dakota)
                  PrioritySelection.ca has ranked Peterson, a 6'3"RW, at #5 for the upcoming OHL draft.
                  All three BU prospects at evaluation camp received invitations for the 2018-19 U17 roster.

                    It appears that BU has received a commitment from Belmont Hill forward/defenseman John Copeland. Hasnít appeared yet on either the Heisenberg or College Hockey Inc. lists.

                    6í5Ē forward out of Wellesley, MA .... His father Todd played @ Michigan in the late 80ís .... he will likely be a 2019-20 recruit
                    Copeland, a right-shot, played four seasons at Belmont Hill, the first three as a forward. He moved to defense this season and led the team in goals with 10, adding 11 assists for 21 points and serving as team captain.

                            For those who may not have seen, the U-18 tourney will be broadcast on NHL Network. I believe game 1 is tomorrow (Thursday) at 10 am.
