As per Jonathan Sigal of The Boston Hockey Blog, Jordan Greenway has decided to return for his junior year at BU. The 6’5″ winger and 2015 Minnesota Wild second round draft pick played 37 games during his sophomore season and had a 10-21-31 scoring line. Over the past several weeks, the Terriers have had to deal with the early departures of top-six forwards Clayton Keller and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, as well as top-scoring defenseman Charlie McAvoy. So, the return of top-six forwards and rising juniors Greenway and Bobo Carpenter will be a boon to the Terrier offense and create additional leadership for another large and talented freshman class this coming fall.
