I would imagine it's a decent league being it is New England, but its still a good question.

Wood will be a Devil one day. His dad, Randy, was a good NHL forward.

Just changed his commitment to Boston College and apparently they are extremely excited. He reminds people of a bigger, more physical Johnny Gaudreau. How the hell were we able to draft him? He's still going to be in high school next year, then going to BC in the Fall of 2015? Was he a sophomore when we drafted him?

Probably because he's so young. Not getting a lot of exposure.

He's clearly a guy that's going to need 3-4 years of work, but still very pleased to hear how well he's doing.

[QUOTE][There are solid recruits. There are really good ones. And then there are the ones that people will remember for a long time. This afternoon, Noble and Greenough forward Miles Wood (Manchester, Ma) committed to Boston College over arch nemesis Boston University. I've been watching ISL hockey for a long time and I've seen some legendary high school hockey players but this kid is the best I have ever seen. I go to a local ISL school and the school's team played Nobles a few weeks ago. About seven minutes into the game, a Nobles defenseman flung the puck around the boards to Miles who beat one forward and created a one on one matchup vs an opposing defenseman at the opposing blue line. Miles just trickled the puck past this kid's legs and made one power move to the net, scoring the first goal for Bulldogs. I think the defenseman is trying to figure out what happened. Think of Johnny G, just a bigger and more physical version of him. Two nights later, he recorded 4 points in a 7-1 rout of BBN.

What can I say ? This is as big as it gets. Beating those guys down the street for the best recruit in the country ? It doesn't get any sweeter than that. According to sources, Miles will go back to Nobles next year to play for coach Brian Day and then matriculate to BC in the fall of 2015. If Johnny G leaves after this year, expect Miles to accelerate.

What a day in Eagle hockey world.

Holy crap, from nothing to one of the best recruits in the country? How is it our scouting is good for the lower rounds but pretty terrible for the 1st?

He went to the same school as Mark Fayne.

Fayne was a 5th rounder...keep scouting that school.

Before his commitment to BC, this blog had him listed as the top uncommitted recruit, with this to say about him.

Quote:
1. 95 F Miles Wood – Noble and Greenough School

Height: 6’2, Weight: 195

Projected Role: Top Line Scorer

A new entrant to the board of uncommitted prospects, the former Brown recruit is going to provide an instant boost to whoever garners a commitment from him. Few skaters have the potential to take over games like New Jersey’s 4th round pick in 2013 can, and even fewer are available so close to their first semester of college.

This season, Wood has taken a large step in his development. Nobles coach Brian Day quoted to us, on Miles’ development, “Miles successfully has worked very hard this season to become a more savvy player with the puck who will take any open ice that is available to him but will move the puck when that is the play to be made. Through the course of this season we have seen a growing level of creativity in his game and a better understanding of how to create more time and space for he and his teammates. An incredibly dynamic player who will attack when he has the puck, he is developing into a more dynamic player who not only has the ability to finish but who has the ability to make those around him better. He is a great kid and a joy to coach.”

A surprisingly deft passer in a big man’s body, with a lethal shot. Deadly with speed behind the puck as he weaves towards the net, word on the street is that Wood’s likely going to end up on Commonwealth Ave – BU or BC – but a decision could take a little while, as he’s got a pretty pressing concern this week: Nobles travels to face a deep Phillips Exeter squad on Wednesday, in quarterfinal action of the New England Tournament.
