A power forward for the future

Terrier Fan Blog August 30, 2018 Comments Off on A power forward for the future

BU received its first 2022 commitment today from North Jersey Avalanche forward Devin Kaplan. The 6’2”, 170 lb., right shot from Bridgewater, NJ gave the Terriers his verbal following strong performances at two high-end summer tournaments.

North Jersey Avs 16U right-shot forward Devin Kaplan has verbally committed to BU. ‘04 is a big, power forward with heavy shot. All 3 Terrier coaches watched him at NV River Rats Jamboree and STX 68.

Last season, Kaplan, an ’04, played up with the Avs’ Bantam Majors and was the team’s second leading scorer with a 15-24-39 scoring line in 31 AYBHL and T1EBHL games. This season, he’ll play up again, skating for the Avs’ 16Us along with BU 2021 recruit Jeremy Wilmer.

Kaplan, whose brother Jordan is a sophomore forward at Sacred Heart, scored 16 points (9G, 7A) in eight games at the 2017 World Selects Invitational, leading Pro Hockey McDonald’s ‘04s to the tournament semifinal. Earlier that year, he paced the New York PeeWee Rangers deep into the Quebec International PeeWee Tournament. 

04 F Devin Kaplan (@TerrierHockey) is a sinewy 6’1 forward already playing up because he competes hard against older players. Great puck possessor with a good A-frame ability. Shows great effort at both ends of the rink: blocks shots, steals pucks & drives the net. ⛰ solid.

Devin Kaplan commits to BU. The 2004 F plays with an edge with and without the puck. Drives the net, wins puck battles, can score and has a crafty element. His ⭐️ rating is TBD; obvious high upside. Four reports attached to his profile.
