BU continues to dominate on the recruiting trails

The coaching staff of the BU hockey team continues to dominate on the recruiting trail. They have added two more recruits in the last week. Hank Crone was added for the 2016 or 2017 class earlier this week while Sean MacTavish was added for 2015 yesterday.

The Crone announcement was made via Twitter on Tuesday. Crone is an undersized playmaker from Texas currently playing with the U16 Stars program. He had 17 goals and 23 assists in 27 games for the Stars this past season. He was signed to a tender by the Omaha Lancers of the USHL earlier this week as well so it appears he will be heading there for the next 2-3 seasons until he arrives at BU. He will need that time to develop as he is undersized(as of now) at 5'8" 141lbs but he is only 16 years old so he will continue to develop and grow in his time in the USHL.  Crone was ranked as the third best skater at the Tier I Elite Showcase back in October. They describe him as a dynamic forward who creates offense in all types of situations. This is certainly a great get for BU as that 2016 class continues to grow stronger with USA U-17 bound Clayton Keller and Johnny McDermott.

BU added a member to their 2015 class last night in Sean MacTavish, who is the son of Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish. The younger MacTavish is a 94 birthdate and will be a 21 year old freshman when he arrives on campus. He put up a very solid 28-44-72 line in 60 games played this past season in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. He will add more depth and scoring to an already stacked recuiting class that include Jordan Greenway, Max Letunov and Bobo Carpenter at forward. The 6'0, 185 lb forward is a former teammate of Terrier Kevin Duane(see tweet below). A coach also told a very reliable source of the Terrier Hockey Blog that MacTavish's commitment was a "total steal for BU".  This coming off the heals of a BC loss in the Frozen Four and things are all coming up BU right now. Oh except York taking Ray Shero's(Pens GM) kid as a courtesy(probably for employing Brooks Orpik).

Kid is a student athlete...
