Name: Marshall Warren
Class Year: Freshman
Drafted: #166 by the Minnesota Wild in 2019
Background: Marshall Warren is a 5’11 defenseman who is known for having excellent puck skills and being a fast skater. He also joins BC from the USNTDP, where he was an alternate captain for the U18 team. He posted 34 points in 58 games this past season, despite being limited by a lower body injury during the first half of the year. During the IIHF U18 World Championships, he tallied 3 points in seven games, en route to winning a bronze medal with Team USA. He was drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the sixth round of this summer’s draft, joining teammates Matt Boldy and Jack McBain.
2019-20 Outlook: Similar to Helleson, Warren could also play a key role in setting the tone for this year’s defensive unit. Over the summer, Warren mentioned that BC coaching staff is looking for him to fill an offensive, top-four defensive role after losing two defensemen from last season to graduation — with his offensive point total from last season, he could potentially fill that role. The Eagles can definitely use a player on defense that generates more offense, as that was a weakness last season.
Fun Fact: Warren was originally committed to Harvard but committed to BC last October, saying that he switched because of the talent at BC but also because his NTDP and future BC teammate Matt Boldy had committed two years prior. (x)
