At Edina High School this season, Bellows notched 27 points in 25 games played. He also scored three times in five games during his team’s state title run.
Bellow’s 5-foot-11 stature has allowed him to develop into one of the top power forwards in the amateur ranks. In May, he was selected 14th overall by the Sioux Stampede in the USHL Phase I Futures Draft. The Minnesota native is the son of former NHL winger and Stanley Cup champion Brian Bellows.
It has not been confirmed what season Bellows will be joining the Terriers, but fellow ’98-born players — forwards Clayton Keller and Hank Crone — are set to be on Commonwealth Avenue for the 2016-17 campaign.
BU also added goaltender Connor LaCouvee to the mix. He joins junior netminders Matt O’Connor and Sean Maguire and graduate student Anthony Moccia.
LaCouvee played in 38 games for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (Port Alberni, British Columbia) in 2013-14, posting a 2.82 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage. According to a report, LaCouvee will join the Terriers for the 2014-15 season.
