Graham McPhee, son of Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee, has committed to play his college hockey at Boston College.
McPhee is one of the best American prospects in the 1998 birth year. He is currently a member of the Shattuck-St. Mary's U16 team, where he has scored 7-13-20 in his first 14 games. As a bantam last year, McPhee scored 89 points in 61 games, which was good for third on his team in scoring.
McPhee is a speedy wing with good size and a strong handle on the puck. He's one of the best in his age group at handling the puck in traffic and being able to make plays with the puck while at top speed, and should only get better as he matures.
His father, George, was a four year star at Bowling Green from 1978 to 1982. In 1982, he became the second ever recipient of the Hobey Baker Award. McPhee was coached by current Boston College head coach Jerry York for his final three seasons at Bowling Green.
