Any NHL team must have a good stock of prospects from the college ranks through the AHL as they develop and build their talent pools.

The Oilers' talent pool received great news last night when Oilers prospect Shane Lachance scored twice in a 4-1 win with the Boston University Terriers against the Merrimack Warriors.


Lachance, the son of former NHL player Scott Lachance, put on a show when he scored his first goal on the power play after the Warriors took a 5-minute major.


There were several crisp passes where his teammates found him in front of the net to shovel in the goal, putting his team up 2-0.


Lachance managed to net his second goal on another power play, assisted by Montreal prospect Lane Hutson and his brother Quinn Hutson, which put the team up 3-0 at 12:50.

With those goals, Lachance has 8 points in his last nine games as a freshman. Pretty impressive.

The 20-year-old left-winger was drafted by the Oilers in 2021 in the sixth round, 186th overall. The Terriers who are off to a great start have a record of 10-4-1 and hold the projected future first overall draft pick in the upcoming 2024 Entry Draft in Macklin Celebrini.
