Speaking of next year's drafts, SBN College Hockey takes a look at the top prospects playing in or born in and around New England for the 2015 NHL Draft. Future Eagles Noah Hanifin, Colin White, David Cotton, Connor Moore and Jeremy Bracco all make the list.

"I think I fit into the program really well," he said. "They had a Heisman runner up at tailback (last year), so obviously they are gonna run the ball. So a lot of people think they only run the ball.
"But they are kind of changing with the new quarterbacks coming in -- Darius Wade and (Elijah Robinson). So I'm happy where they are heading from an offensive standpoint. And the staff is awesome. I love the place, love Boston itself, school-side, really everything about it."
