Jakob Oettinger (born December 18, 1998) is an American collegiate ice hockey player who currently plays as a goaltender for Boston University for the 2017–18 season. After being part of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program, he has been widely considered as a top prospect for 2017 NHL Entry Draft.[1] The Dallas Stars traded up from pick 29 to selected Oettinger in the first round, 26th overall, of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.[2]

Playing career[edit]

During his freshman season at Boston University, Oettinger posted a 2.11 goals-against average and .927 save-percentage.[3] During that season, Oettinger was named Hockey East Goaltender of the Month for the month of October, was a two-time Hockey East Rookie of the Week, a two-time Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week and was named Hockey East Top Performer four times.[4] Thus, he was named to the Hockey East All-Rookie Team and Hockey East Second Team All-Star at the end of the year.[4][3] During his second season at Boston University, Oettinger was named to the Hockey East All-Tournament Team of the 2018 Hockey East Men's Ice Hockey Tournament and earned the William Flynn Tournament Most Valuable Player award after he helped Boston win their ninth Hockey East Tournament title.[5]
