National Signing Period

Today marks the beginning of the National Signing Period. Only players arriving on campus next year with scholarship money in the first season can sign NLI's. So players who are committed for 2014 or beyond are not permitted to sign NLI's this year. Also players who are recruited walk-ons or only receiving a 2 for 4 do not sign NLI's.

Hockey East has some top notch talent coming in next season, which we will take a look at over the next few weeks. Merrimack and UMass-Lowell both lost prized recruits to de-commitments in recent months. Wade Murphy reneged on his verbal to Merrimack to switch to North Dakota while JT Stenglein backed out on his verbal to Lowell to move on to Michigan State.

As has been the case for most of the past 15 years, BC has the best recruiting class in Hockey East. UNH has a star studded class, as well. Northeastern's class looks real good on paper, as well.
