How did Macklin Celebrini play last week?

The prize of the draft is the Boston University freshman forward. He is another generational talent on the same level as Connor Bedard.

He had a monster week for the Terriers with three goals and two assists in two games against UConn.

Celebrini scored two of those goals and picked up those two assists Friday night at UConn.

Celebrini scored his 26th goal of the season on Saturday night.

Boston U outscored UConn 12-1 in those two games. The Terriers wrap up their regular season this week with a game at Providence on Thursday night and then a home contest against Vermont on Saturday night.

Celebrini made a strong case to be the Hobey Baker Award winner with his strong play against the Huskies. Macklin is among 12 players who have a great chance of winning the prestigious award.

How did Blackhawks' prospect Ryan Greene play last week for Boston University?
