ST. PAUL, Minn.— If Matt Boldy had any doubters, he likely converted them with his performance in Wednesday night’s USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game at the XCel Energy Center.
The Millis, Mass., native scored two goals, including the game-tying goal with 1:07 left in regulation, and assisted on the game-winning goal with just 36 ticks on the clock. The 17-year-old had a team-high six shots on goal as Team Langenbrunner defeated Team Leopold, 6-4, in the annual game that showcases top American-born NHL Draft prospects.
Boldy, committed to Boston College, was rewarded for his efforts by being named the USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game Player of the Game. The impressive showing was yet another feather in the cap for a once-overlooked prospect who played his freshman season at Dexter School before heading off to USA Hockey’s NTDP.
