Clayton Keller rejects Windsor

BU incoming freshman Clayton Keller has publicly rejected his offer from the Windsor Spitfires of the OHL(Ontario Hockey League). This is big news to BU hockey fans as it confirms that Keller will remain on campus for his freshman season. Obviously these types of things can change in a moment's notice(see Bracco, Jeremy) but it appears that Keller seems intent to play with the three fellow first round picks(Bellows, Fabbro and McAvoy) on the roster as well as the rest of the talent that BU coach David Quinn has brought in this season.

Windsor definitely had a lot to offer Keller as they are the hosts of the Memorial Cup this coming season and have a few close friends of Keller on the roster. Ultimately, Keller made the decision that he felt was the best for his career growth and also happens to be the one all BU fans were pulling for.

Keller will be an instant impact player at BU and will be put into a top 6 role right away. I would not be surprised to see Quinn treat similar to Eichel in that he will play on all units including PK to make Keller the best player he can be and help him develop for the next level.
