In addition to the nine members of the Boston University incoming class, Drew Melanson has joined the Terriers as a graduate transfer after spending the past three seasons at Rensselaer.

As a graduate transfer, Melanson is eligible to play immediately.

“High-end speed and a guy who has always had the ability to score,” said BU coach David Quinn in a statement. “He had a good career at RPI and he’s going to give us some maturity and some leadership. He will absolutely increase our team speed.”

Melanson picked up 43 points on 17 goals and 26 assists in 100 games with the Engineers. He was named to 2014-15 ECAC Hockey All-Rookie Team after leading RPI in scoring with 20 points (nine goals, 11 assists).
