Jack Eichel Claims Another Victim

While the OHL's Connor Mcdavid has already been declared the next great one by many, Boston University freshman Jack Eichel has been kicking ass and taking names throughout the NCAA. This past weekend the 3rd ranked BU Terriers completed a weekend sweep over #12 Vermont, thanks to an OT winner from the Chelmsford native. This weekend Eichel was able to extend his point totals to 13 goals and 22 assists through 22 games, good for the best PPG in the country. Oh yeah and by the way he just turned 18.
He also leads the country in OT goals with winners against:


Umass Lowell 


Basically, Jack Eichel is nasty. While he'll probably go #2 overall, especially if a Canadian team such as the Oilers picks first, mark my words he will turn out better than McDavid. The Oilers are where talented players go to die. Also, Eichel is a stronger, more powerful player that fits the pro game. His body is more ready for the NHL as opposed to McDavid who is what, like 120 pounds soaking wet? The two most important weeks of the year are coming up in Boston as the beanpot is up for grabs. Can't wait for Eichel to strike again first against the nerds of Harvard and then those BC choir boys if  Northeastern doesn't get them first.
