Johnathan MacLeod sat as BU avenged a Friday night loss to Vermont with a shutout win Saturday. Jake Oettinger (2017) stopped 25 shots for the shutout. There were reports this week out of Moncton, New Brunswick, that the Wildcats, who own the rights to MacLeod, would try to convince him to leave school and go to the Q. Speculation in the reports said Moncton – who is rebuilding – would flip MacLeod to powerhouse Rouyn-Noranda. MacLeod has been in and out of a stacked BU lineup the last two years. He’s a junior at BU and would be an overager as a 20-year-old with Moncton/R-N.
