“‘Boo’ is certainly the best high-profile kid in this area since (Rangers prospect) Chris Kreider,” Central Scouting’s Gary Eggleston told

Kreider, currently starring at Boston College, was taken with the 19th pick of the 2009 draft by the Rangers after starring at Phillips Academy, a prep school in Andover, Mass.

“He just explodes off the mark and has agility, balance and quickness to break loose from traffic,” Eggleston said. “He also has the physical strength to plow through checks along the wall and bring the puck with him. He sees the ice very well, is a very smart and creative playmaker and captains the team … he’s a very good team player.”
