#15, JD Dudek, Forward

Class Year: Freshman
Height: 5'11''
Weight: 185
Hometown: Auburn, N.H.

Before BC:

Played for the Chicago Steel and Dubuque Fighting Saints in the USHL. Played at Kimball Union Academy. He was captain of Kimball's team during the 2013-14 season. Before transferring to Kimball, Dudek played at Pinkerton with Zach Sanford

Fun facts:

- Drafted 152nd in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils.
- Dudek's father, Joe, played football at Plymouth State. He finished 9th in Heisman Trophy voting, which is the highest finish for a non-D1 player.

2014-2015 in review:

Dudek started the 2014-15 season with Dubuque, where he played 41 games before being traded to Chicago. He recorded 6 goals and 6 assists in Dubuque, and went on to score 14 goals and record 2 assists in his 13 games with Chicago.

2015-2016 outlook:

Dudek will likely see some playing time this season, but with so many skilled incoming freshmen he'll have to fight for his spot. Dudek is a strong player who is willing to fight for the puck, and working with the trainers at BC should help him to put on a little more muscle. Dudek has a reputation as a hard worker, and he could quickly become a fan favorite.
