Two Hockey East teams are getting quality production from a pair of players who were chosen later in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft in a pair of juniors with Northeastern and UMass Lowell.
Bay Stater Aidan McDonough’s 11 goals lead all players in the Hockey East, while Andre Lee’s team-leading 10 points in 11 games have been integral in helping the River Hawks get off to a 5-1-1 start in the conference.
From Milton, Mass. the 6-foot-2, 200-pound McDonough has done it in just 14 games, matching his single-season high set as a freshman (31 games). It certainly looks like the Canucks stole the former Thayer Academy star with the 195th overall selection in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
