The first player taken was 2015 recruits Maxim Letunov by the Saint Louis Blues in the second round and 52nd overall. Letunov has some flashy offensive skills but currently weighs in at 155 lbs. He certainly needs to throw on some muscle before he gets to BU next fall and St. Louis in the years following that. He currently plays for the Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL.
St. Louis selects highly creative forward Maxim Letunov (BU) at 52. Could be very high end as he fills out his frame.

The second Terrier taken was 2014 recruit Johnny Macleod. Johnny Mac (Don't know if that's a nickname yet but it is now) was taken 57th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightening. He will arrive at BU this fall and contribute right away with his physical defensive game.
I am so honored to be apart of the @TBLightning organization! Thank you to all friends and family that helped me get to this point!!

Another future defenseman was taken in the third round when Brandon Hickey was drafted by the Calgary Flames. Hickey will arrive at BU this fall and join classmates Macleod, Brandon Fortunato, and Brien Diffley in solidifying the Terriers' blueline for the coming season.
With the 64th pick at the #NHLDraft, the #Flames have selected defenceman Brandon Hickey!

First @TheAJHL player picked is D-man Brandon Hickey from Saints. He is committed to Boston Univ. Played midget AAA in Leduc. Great kid.

Two forwards were taken later in the draft as right winger JJ Piccinich was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs 103rd overall while Liam Coughlin(2014/2015) was taken by Edmonton 130th overall. Piccinich will arrive at BU this fall and look to contribute right away with goal scoring ability and willingness to go to gritty areas to score goals. Coughlin will arrive on Comm Ave either this fall or the fall of 2015 and should contribute right away.
Other Terrier recruits that went undrafted in their first year of draft eligibility were Brandon Fortunato, Chase Phelps, and Bobo Carpenter(2015). These guys could easily be drafted next year with stellar years in their respective leagues in the coming season.
