It's pretty funny saying they haven't moved any exclusive BA players to the NHL.
I'd say Adam Gaudette (Northeastern NCAA, where he won the Hobey Baker Award, Hockey East Player of the Year, and was named to the AHCA East First-Team All-American. Selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, he made his NHL debut with the team in 2018) is about as exclusive of a single program player development as you will find in New England.
The only other local recent 'single program player' would be perhaps John Marino and the SSK now on the Penguins.
What most dads don't understand until the kid gets to the Midget level is, so many of these kids play for numerous programs, attend a wide range of camps, play on various tournament teams. My oldest son pla*** Town hockey, for the Terriers, BA, SSK Tournament teams, attended Boston Mission hockey camps, High school hockey, Tier I Juniors & college. Which 'program did he play for?' Answer: All of them.
Gaudette pla*** a total of 13 games for BA and not until he was U16.
Exactly, a kid does one of their Skills or Summer skating camps.
They take credit for the kid's Ice Hockey career.
Hopefully UPPABaby's kids getting a spot in the NHL. They are ponying up a lot of Money for Lovell's Academy/Building.
AG was a Terrier idiot. Then 1/2 season BA for a year. He gets free ice for them using his name. The youngest stuff was the real BA full timer. The one that literally can’t skate. Neither of the younger ones any good and don’t see ice time in college. On their respective teams due to names and a favor.
