Toronto Maple Leafs 2015 NHL Draft pick Jeremy Bracco has left Boston College to sign with the Kitchener Rangers in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), as first reported by Mike McMahon of College Hockey News.
Sources have confirmed to SB Nation that Bracco is already in Kitchener and will sign immediately. The Freeport, NY native had three assists in five games this season with the Eagles. The U.S. NTDP product had long been rumored as a flight risk to leave the NCAA route for major junior.
Bracco was one of the most productive offensive players in NTDP history, breaking several longstanding records. His loss is a significant blow to a young Boston College team.
