Name: Henry Wilder

Position: Goalie

Year: Sophomore

Number: #31

Height: 6’ 0”

Hometown: Needham, MA

Previous Stats: Playing behind all-galaxy goaltender Spencer Knight means that you are going to do a lot of hanging out in the penalty box and opening the bench door, but Wilder filled admirably as the starter while Knight was away at World Juniors last season. His 3.21 GAA and .909 save percentage don’t really tell the story, as the BC roster was pretty shorthanded during those games and he pretty much stole the win for the Eagles in his first career start with some clutch late saves.

Oh yeah, and he had a baller assist to win the game, too.

Season Outlook: We’ve got a full-on goalie battle this season, folks. With Spencer Knight gone, it’s going to be a duel between Wilder and graduate transfer Eric Dop of Bowling Green to see who can get hot for the Eagles. Expect a wide-open 50/50 split of time in the first half of the season with one of the two taking the reigns as the “1a” with whoever brings their A game.

Fun Fact: Wilder was teammates with Boston University goaltender Drew Commesso in 7th and 8th grade at St. Sebastian’s before leaving to play at The Hotchkiss School.
