Sunday night’s CWHL draft saw two additional Eagles drafted into women’s pro hockey.
Graduating senior Kristyn Capizzano was first up on the nice as she was taken second overall by her hometown Toronto Furies. Capizzano was a standout player pretty much from the time she arrived on campus, putting up an impressive 102 points over the course of her Boston College career.
Alex Carpenter’s name was an unexpected addition to the list of eligible draftees. Carpenter has already played in the NWHL, but jumped over to the CWHL for the opportunity to play for one of the two new Chinese teams in the league, the Kunlun Red Star. Her father, Bobby Carpenter, is an assistant coach for the Kunlun Red Star men’s team and is on the club’s international advisory board.
Capizzano and Carpenter join Katie Burt, Kenzie Kent, and Toni Ann Miano as Eagles drafted in this year’s professional women’s hockey drafts.
Congratulations to all five Eagles on the achievement!
