Rounding out the Bruins’ prospects is a member of ECAC Hockey and a member of a college playing independently.
Both veterans, Dustyn McFaul is in his third year at Clarkson University while Jack Becker transferred to Arizona State University as a grad student.
Dustyn McFaul – Clarkson University
One of the more lesser-known prospects, McFaul is a sixth-round pick from the 2018 draft. He enters his junior season at Clarkson University, where he’s serving as one of the assistant captains, always a good sign when it comes to leadership.
The 6-foot-3 defenseman is more of a stay-at-home defender, but has shown flashes of jumping up in the play. In 50 games in Clarkson, he’s registered 10 points with a +13. After playing in a smaller role last season with Clarkson, he’s in line to see an uptick in minutes this season playing on Casey Jones’ squad.
McFaul slotted in on the top defensive pair in Clarkson’s exhibition match this weekend against St. Lawrence, playing alongside Lukas Kaelble, a transfer from Lake Superior State. With another year of development, McFaul is a sneaky-good prospect to keep an eye on.
Jack Becker – Arizona State University
The oldest tenured Bruins prospect of the bunch, Jack Becker was selected in the seventh round of the 2015 draft. Yes, that same infamous draft…
The forward spent the last four seasons at Michigan, where in 124 games, Becker had 51 points. He topped out at 15 points in a season, which he did both his freshman and sophomore season. However, his production fell off the last two.
Becker used the opportunity to play for a fifth year, transferring to Arizona State. He’s off to a solid start, with a goal and an assist in the Sun Devils’ first two games against UMass Lowell. He’s a long shot to be a member of the Bruins’ organization after this year, unless it’s in an ECHL role.
