Frank Vatrano Leaves Boston College Hockey Program

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The 5-foot-10, 206 pound forward was set to start his collegiate career on the Heights in a few weeks.

According to multiple sources, Boston College freshman forward Frank Vatrano has left the school for undisclosed reasons. Vatrano did not practice with the Eagles on Tuesday.

Vatrano played for the U.S. NTDP last season, appearing in 60 games and registering 35 points (16 goals, 19 assists). At last winter's IIHF World U18 Championship, he recorded two goals and two assists in six games with the U.S. Under-18 team. Vatrano was also scheduled to play in this weekend's All-American Prospects Game out in Buffalo.

His QMJHL rights are owned by the Moncton Wildcats. If he goes on to play in the USHL, he'd be free to transfer to any program.

Vatrano was regarded as one of Boston College's top incoming players this season. He's a significant loss to be Eagles 2012-13 attack, but I don't think one that can't be overcome. Vatrano likely projected to be a third or fourth line forward this season. The timing is the more significant hurdle as the season starts in a little over two weeks. York and the staff will have to scramble a bit to juggle the lines to compensate for the loss of Vatrano.
