Looking ahead

2020 recruit Jay O’Brien scored a power play goal in his first game for BCHL Penticton, a 3-1 exhibition game win against Merritt. A Flyers’ first-round draft pick in 2018, O’Brien is transferring to BU after spending his freshman season at Providence.

2023 recruit Ryan Fine, who was the first ’05 birthdate to commit to an NCAA school, had a strong performance at the recent SFX ’68 Combine in Chicago, earning a high ranking from New England Hockey Journal:

#3. Ryan Fine
#8 Black, Mid Fairfield, 3/14/05, Right Shot
NCAA Commit: Boston University

Fine is a speedy forward with elite playmaking capabilities. He had three goals and an assist. All three goals came in Sunday’s finale. His speed is an asset as he can burn by guys and accelerate quickly to make plays in small areas. His agility is a notable asset. He sees the ice well and knows where to find pucks.

Looking back

30 years ago today, Chris Drury, a future NCAA and Stanley Cup champion, and Hobey Baker and Calder Trophy winner, pitched a 5-hitter for Trumbull, CT, for a 5-2 victory over Taiwan to win the Little League World Series. (Video). Drury is currently assistant general manager of the N.Y. Rangers.
