BU dominates NHL draft

When Boston University had four draft picks go in the first 50 picks in last year's NHL draft, fans across the country were left impressed by David Quinn and Co.'s recruiting. The 2016 draft left them in shock, awe, and fear of the amount of talent aligning on the same team on Comm. Ave for this coming season. Four BU Terriers were taken in the first 20 picks with the 5th coming off the board at 45 overall to top last year's mark of four picks in the top 50.

Those 5 draft picks along with Patrick Harper going in the 5th round leaves BU with 11 draft picks for the coming season including 6 defensemen. The tough part of setting a lineup for Quinn will be deciding where to play his 5 drafted forwards to mix with the experience and talent of the rest of the roster. Forwards such as Ryan Cloonan, Oskar Andren, Nik Olsson and others return to bring valuable experience and #grit to the lineup.

A way too early look at what next year's lineup could look like on opening night at Colgate
