Look at the depth chart for the U18 US National Team Development Program squad this season and you’ll find a lot of intriguing prospects for the 2023 NHL draft. You’re also going to see a bunch of Boston College logos on that sheet of paper.

In what can only qualify as an incredible coup for the Eagles, six of the NTDP’s players are committed to Boston College, including the entire top line of Will Smith between Gabe Perreault and Ryan Leonard – all of whom could be first-rounders this summer. Will Vote rounds out the forward commits, while defensemen Aram Minnetian and Drew Fortescue are repping the future Eagles on the back end.
