Two days after the final game of his three-year BU career, Jordan Greenway is poised to take the ice tonight for the Minnesota Wild and become the 82nd Terrier to reach the NHL.
Greenway, who signed a 3-year entry level contract with the Wild on Monday, is in Nashville for Minnesota’s game against the Western Conference-leading Predators.
He is expected to be at left wing on a line with 41-year old center Matt Cullen and former Terrier Charlie Coyle.
Freshman Brady Tkachuk, with assists in both NCAA Regional games, earned Hockey East Rookie of the Week honors. Greenway, Drew Melanson and Bobo Carpenter all were named to the weekly Top Performers list.
2019 recruit Trevor Zegras scored a goal and assisted on three more scores as the NTDP U17s dropped a 9-6 decision to Chicago. Zegras is third on the U17s with 51 points (17G, 34A). Defenseman Alex Vlasic scored his eighth goal for the U17s, while fellow recruit Robert Mastrosimone had a goal and an assist for the Steel and now has 38 points (14G, 24A).
Jack Eichel scored a pair of goals, including the third-period game-winner, as Buffalo edged Toronto, 3-2.
Clayton Keller scored his 23rd goal and added an assist in Arizona’s 4-1 win over Tampa Bay. Keller extended his scoring streak to nine games
