Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson, or JFK as he’s affectionately known on Comm Ave, reportedly will leave BU at the end of the season and play professional hockey.

The sophomore is third on the Terriers in points with 31, behind freshman star Clayton Keller and breakout Patrick Harper. His 13 goals is good enough for a share of second on the team with Bobo Carpenter, again behind Keller. While JFK’s game isn’t terribly flashy, he’s an incredibly strong two-way center and could learn a tremendous amount from Patrice Bergeron about continuing to elevate his game. It’s not clear what the timeline Forsbacka-Karlsson could have to crack the NHL roster with the center depth the Bruins have. For now, he’ll continue to be a top-six rock for the Terriers heading into the Hockey East and NCAA playoffs.
