Hetnik, along with Hanson, met with Terriers head coach Jack Parker on Thursday morning. The Chestnut Hill resident will play a year of juniors before heading to Commonwealth Ave., with the Vernon Vipers of the British Columbia Hockey League and the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League emerging as top targets.

The Knights blue liner was also considering Boston College, Merrimack and Holy Cross among other schools.
