Frost Chooses Boston College

Will Join Hawks as Eagles Recruit

The Waterloo Black Hawks chose Matthew Frost with the top selection during Phase I of the 2022 United States Hockey League Draft in May; on Monday, Frost made a pick of his own, announcing that he will attend Boston College after concluding his junior hockey career.

The 15-year-old is already familiar with the New England region.  He spent the 2021/22 season with the Connecticut-based South Kent Selects. In 58 16U games last winter, Frost had 62 points (26 goals, 36 assists).  Waterloo traded up in order to acquire Frost with the first overall pick during the draft.

“We are extremely excited to have Matthew in our organization,” said Black Hawks Head Coach Matt Smaby.  “During our camps this summer, he has demonstrated tremendous ability and hockey sense.  We think Matthew will be a major part of the Black Hawks’ organization in the near future.”
Last year’s Boston College roster included former Waterloo forward Matt Argentina, who appeared in 29 games and recorded five points (two goals, three assists) as a college freshman.

The Hawks’ links to the Eagles also include three alumni who went on to win NCAA titles at BC (Tim Filangieri, Patrick Wey, and Parker Milner).  There are four former Hawks who progressed from Waterloo through Boston College and eventually to the NHL: Wey, Andrew Alberts, Zach Sanford, and Ian McCoshen.
