Boston University has a dozen NHL draft picks on its roster. But the top scorer isn’t one of them.
Leading the Terriers in points is senior winger from Wood Ridge, N.J., Matt Brown – undrafted, undersized but not underappreciated — with a 7-11-18 line in 14 games. Only two players in Hockey East have put up more points.
Brown’s stats so far this year are even more impressive when you consider that he finished last season with 17 points in 24 games.
“He drives our offense with his speed,” says first-year head coach Jay Pandolfo, whose team is seventh in the Pairwise Rankings with a 10-4 record.
“I’m sure there’s (NHL) teams watching him. He’s producing every night. He’s a guy that’s very good with offensive players, so it’s going to help if he plays with those players because he can finish, he’s got speed, he’s on the puck. That’s his game,” said Pandolfo.
