For Minnesota Wild forward prospect Jordan Greenway, the decision between turning pro or returning for his junior season at Boston University wasn't easy. Greenway, 20, said he feels NHL-ready. But he feels a stronger pull to go back for his third season with the Terriers. "The job isn't done there yet," he said. "I want to win a lot more championships [in Boston]. I want to find a way to create more offense for myself [at the college level] first, and be more of an impact player when I come in here [to the Wild]. "I don't want to be average. I want to come in and have an impact for a while as soon as I can, so going back to school for one more year, that's what I'm going to do." The Wild selected Greenway in the second round (No. 50) of the 2015 NHL Draft. At 6-foot-6, 226 pounds, he has the body Minnesota needs to dominate down low and around the net. Wild director of player development Brad Bombardir said he sees major strides in the power forward, who attended his third development camp with Minnesota in July. "He's starting to learn what his strengths really are," Bombardir said. "Taking pucks to the net. Forcing himself to the front of the net. Living in the blue paint as much as he can. Those are his strengths. He would do that maybe once in a while a couple years ago. Now he's really starting to realize that that's where his game lies, and he has to play that way night in and night out." Greenway is quick to acknowledge Boston University coach David Quinn and his staff for helping him hone his skills and utilize his assets -- primarily his size -- to his advantage.
