Name: Logan Hutsko

Number: 9

Position: Forward

Class Year: Freshman

Background: Logan Hutsko is an intriguing prospect for Boston College. Hutsko has been an outstanding prospect throughout his career, starring for Shattuck St. Mary's and putting up 90 points in 55 games for their U16 team in 2014-15.

That performance put him on the US national team development program's radar, and in 2015-16 he scored 16 points in 32 games for the US U17s. During his U17 season, however, he suffered a broken neck, derailing his season. In 2016-17 with the U-18 team, Hutsko suffered another season-ending injury in the first half of the year.

Hutsko will be looking to stay healthy and get back into the groove of playing a full season after two years of being plagued by injuries.

That said, if he can overcome those injuries, he has the talent to succeed at this level..

A shorter player at 5’10’’, he’s known as a quick skater with explosive playmaking ability. Hutsko is also known as a relenteless forechecker and a guy who can both set up goals and score them himself.

2017-18 Outlook: Hutsko steps in to the #9 jersey vacated by a fan favorite, Austin Cangelosi, and worn by several other Eagle greats. Let’s hope that’s a vote of confidence.

As one of BC’s most talented incoming freshmen, he will have every opportunity to play in the top nine and possibly on the power play as well - as long as he’s healthy. That’s obviously going to be the biggest question mark.

Fun Fact: Logan Hutsko's favorite player as a kid was Vincent Lecavalier, which is why he wore #4 throughout his high school and junior career.
