    What point range do people suggest Tkachuk might have this season? I'm thinking part of his high draft ranking might be due to his NHL size body frame which doesn't necessarily translate into immediate dominance at the college level. Obviously, nobody is envisioning Eichel numbers, but I'm probably thinking Keller numbers should be considered a ceiling rather than an expectation?

      From Prawdzik's bio:
      Led the Brahmas to the Robertson Cup championship, posting a 1.56 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage in the playoffs after putting up a 2.14 and .908 during the regular season.
      How will that translate to D1 games? He certainly faced tougher competition in the NAHL than in prep school and excelled in pressure situations. Wouldn't be surprised to see him get a start in the series vs. Minnesota State (and Connor LaCouvee).

        I agree that we don't usually see big guys rack up points as freshmen. And especially for Brady, where his game is about a lot more than scoring.

        I think the low end is 15g 15a 30 pts, high end is 20g 25a 45 pts.

          I am going to guess pretty slim. As good as he is, I figure they will want someone with more experience. Needless to say, it would be a big blow to the team to lose him for a couple weeks.

            BC actually has a really good backup in Ryan Edquist. Was a talented recruit and played well last year.

                College Hockey Inc. has posted preseason polls for all six Division 1 hockey conferences. BU's out-of-conference schedule includes match-ups with the top ranked teams in the NCHC (Denver: home-Oct. 27), the WCHA (Minnesota St.: home-Oct. 13 & 14) and the ECAC (Harvard: BP-Feb. 5) , as well as three other top six ECAC teams (Quinnipiac, Cornell and Union). Six of those seven games are in October and November.
