Boston College Hockey Lands A Pair Of Recruits In The Gaudreau Brothers

Jerry York and the Eagles landed a pair of recruits today in forwards John Gaudreau and his brother, Matt Gaudreau. Both were Northeastern commits before being released from their commitment following the resignation of Huskies head coach Greg Cronin.

As kids are apt to do these days, John Gaudreau took to Twitter to make his announcement:

"Boston college it is!!"

There was a bit of a Hockey East sweepstakes for Gaudreau's services, who selects Boston College over New Hampshire and Vermont, among others. Here's Slightly Chilled's Ryan Clark's scouting report on Gaudreau:

"Chris Heisenberg has BC with six incoming forwards and the Eagles lost two senior forwards along with Cam Atkinson and Jimmy Hayes from last year's team so it appears things would be open for Gaudreau. Gaudreau would give the Eagles a forward that could come in and be a high-end scorer as the season progresses. Some may argue that his 5-8, 141-pound frame could be an issue, but it certainly wasn't last season when he faced much larger competition in the USHL. That and think about some the players Jerry York has developed and in this case, the one that stands out is Nathan Gerbe given the similarities with Gaudreau. Plus, BC is one of the nation's best at developing pro talent and that was evidenced by the 11 NHL Draft Picks on last season's roster. Now, the "red flag" that comes up with BC is, how would they be able to get Gaudreau in for next season? The Eagles recently told Fargo Force defenseman and former Northeastern commit Garrett Haar they didn't have the money to bring him in for next year. It would certainly be interesting to see how it all works out if Gaudreau picks BC."

John's brother, Matt, also gave a verbal commitment to Boston College today and will spend a year in the USHL with the Omaha Lancers before hitting the Heights. A 5-foot-9, 145 forward, Matt played this past season for for Team Comcast and Gloucester (NJ) Catholic High School.

Welcome to the Heights, John and Matt.
