Northeastern goalie Cayden Primeau will be one of many best prospects to watch from the Beanpot title game.
Weekly this column will highlight NHL potential and 2019 draft-eligible player information, with a detailed watch on U.S. men’s college hockey, and share any thoughts from recent potential viewings as we look ahead to June’s 2019 NHL draft.
The school baseball world turns its attention on Monday for the 67th Beanpot final.
The 20-year-old has stored the Flyers’ 201819 season. What’s next? Plus, a candidate for the most improved player of that NHL.
Northeastern is looking its initial Beanpots when the Huskies topped Boston University in successive decades. To do it, they’ll certainly be looking to Vancouver Canucks draft pick Tyler Madden, who is tied for the team’s scoring guide for a freshman, and goaltender Cayden Primeau (Montreal Canadiens) are the catalysts. For Primeauthis will probably be his next crack at starting the Beanpot final, after standing on his mind with 38 saves in the past year’s title game.
On the opposite side, Boston College will want to build off of a win against Harvard in last week’s semi final. Just before this 2-1 success, Boston College had not won a nonconference game since Nov. 14, 20-16. It’s been a rough couple of years for the Eagles, but a Beanpot title amid the consistency battles for creating some confidence, would go a ways.
