Boldy has been an explosive offensive player for BC, so his signing is not a big surprise and fans can expect to see him successfully making the jump to the pros.
Boldy was 1 of 4 players on this years BC squad drafted by Minnesota, joined by Marshall Warren, Jack McBain, and Nikita Nesterenko. Ian McCoshen is the only former Eagle currently on a Minnesota roster - he is playing for the AHL team, the Iowa Wild, at this time.
