Fortunato leaving BU

It was announced last night that Brandon Fortunato will be leaving the BU hockey program. It seems like he would be looking to transfer to a school with an opportunity for more playing time. Playing time was going to be a crunch for Fortunato with captain Doyle Somerby returning on D with first round draft picks Charlie McAvoy and Dante Fabbro, second round picks Johnny Macleod and Chad Krys, third round pick Brandon Hickey and returners Brien Diffley and Shane Switzer.  There were rumors that Fortunato was going to be moved to forward but they may be something he was not comfortable with for his career development. Fortunato was a very capable defenseman for BU and quarterbacked the powerplay for them during each of his two seasons. He tallied 40 points in 79 games for the Terriers and was responsible as a defenseman as well despite his smaller frame.
