NTDP '98-born defenseman Chad Krys announced via Twitter on Friday that he has verbally committed to Boston University
Krys is a huge pick-up for the Terriers as he has established himself as arguably the top defenseman in his age group in the United States and is a very strong candidate to be a first round, possibly even high first round draft choice in next June's NHL Draft.
I wrote this scouting report on Krys from this past October:
Krys was called up from the U17 team to the U18 team in the second half of last season and played with Team USA at the World U18 Championships where he won a gold medal. Krys was also invited to the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp as a potential candidate for next year's US World Juniors team.
As mentioned above, he's following in his father's footsteps to Boston University. His dad, Mark, played with the Terriers from 1987-1991, captaining the '90-'91 squad in his senior season.
