Croteau, Doyle, Copponi, All-American Teams

Canadiens prospect Emmett Croteau has entered the transfer portal, relays Brad Elliott Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald.  The 20-year-old was a sixth-round pick by Montreal in 2022, going 162nd overall.  Croteau recently finished his freshman year at Clarkson but only suited up six times and struggled, posting a save percentage of just .835.  With Clarkson adding Ethan Langenegger – a fifth-year transfer – via the portal, playing time for Croteau wasn’t going to be coming next season so he’ll try his luck at landing a better opportunity elsewhere.

Other news from the college ranks:

  • Kings prospect Braden Doyle has entered the transfer portal, relays Brad Elliott Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald. It’s the second time he’ll be on the move as he went from Boston University to Northeastern in 2022.  The 22-year-old blueliner was a sixth-round pick back in 2019 (157th overall) but was limited to just 13 games this season where he had just one goal.
  • Oilers prospect Matt Copponi is transferring to Boston University, reports Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal (Twitter link). The 20-year-old middleman had a strong showing this season at Merrimack, picking up 32 points in 30 games.  Edmonton drafted Copponi last summer, selecting him 216th overall after Copponi’s sophomore campaign and now he’ll have a chance to play at one of the more prominent college hockey programs next season.
  • On Friday, the American Hockey Coaches Association announced the All-American First and Second Teams, featuring 25 players in total (the Second Team East had six skaters and a goalie). Montreal’s Lane Hutson was the only player to land on a First Team for the second straight year while San Jose’s Collin Graf and Philadelphia’s Massimo Rizzo, who made Second Teams, landed on one of the teams for the second straight year.
