Captain of Jack Parker’s final Terrier squad in 2012-13, Megan leads Chicago in goals with 13 and is third in the AHL. The Canton, NY native was originally draft by Florida in 2009. Scheduled to skate tonight on the third or fourth line for the Blues, he’ll become the 78th Terrier to skate in an NHL game and the fourth to make his NHL debut this season. On the Blues, he’ll rejoin another former BU captain, Kevin Shattenkirk, whose junior year was Megan’s first on Comm. Ave.
