1. Matt Grzelcyk- Boston Bruins
- Grzelcyk was listed as the B's #12 overall prospect after his stellar freshman campaign for BU. Grzelcyk's relationship with Ryan Fitzgerald,incoming BC freshman and fellow B's draft pick, was highlighted in this piece by CSN's Joe Haggerty. "Grizz" will hopefully remain with the Terriers for another 2 or 3 years but he is quickly rising up the Bruins prospect rankings.
2. Ben Rosen, Cason Hohmann, Evan Rodrigues, Doyle Somerby- New York Islanders
- The Islanders had 4 Terriers in their developmental camp as they try to build off their promising season last year by adding BU guys to the mix. That certainly is a respectable strategy and one that is bound to succeed. Steven Braid from Newsday profiled the Blue Team from the scrimmage where Hohmann, Rodrigues, and Rosen were all on the same team. It is awesome to see Hohmann and Rodrigues getting a look from an NHL team as they deserved to be drafted and will certainly have offers after two more stellar years as top 6 forwards for BU.
Incoming BU freshman defenseman Doyle Somerby who is a 2012 draft pick of the team was also in attendance and let go a 88 mph slap shot in the hardest shot competition. Somerby was quoted in an article from the Islanders website explaining the difference in how he feels about development camp from this year to last year.
" Fellow defenseman Doyle Somerby, who recently made the transition from prep school competition to the United States Hockey League, is set to begin his NCAA career at Boston University in the fall. The 6’6 blueliner attended his first mini-camp as a 17-year-old in 2012, less than 24 hours after the Islanders selected him in that year’s draft. This time around, he feels less overwhelmed heading into the week.
