McAvoy was ranked sixth, while Boston University recruits Clayton Keller and Kieffer Bellows were ninth and 10th, respectively, in rankings released Tuesday.

McAvoy ranked sixth among BU players with 25 points in his freshman season. He was plus-10.

Wisconsin forward Luke Kunin, North Dakota forward recruit Tyson Jost, Minnesota-Duluth forward recruit Riley Tufte and BU defenseman recruit Dante Fabbro also were ranked in the top 20 for North American skaters.
