We're still two months out from the 2018-19 college hockey season commencing, but New England-based programs are nonetheless making moves on the recruiting trail and coaching front.
Boston University has received a commitment from U.S. National Team Development Program U18 star Dom Fensore, one of the top 2001-born defensemen in the country. From Thornwood, N.Y., Fensore was originally committed to Quinnipiac.
Fensore is the first major recruiting victory for the Terriers since Albie O'Connell became head coach and Paul Pearl crossed the river from Harvard to become the former's associate head coach. Those coaching changes were prompted by Cranston, R.I., native David Quinn leaving Comm. Ave. to become head coach of the NHL's New York Rangers.
