This season Filangieri established himself as a gritty and reliable part of the strong Boston College defense. The Islip Terrace, NY native notched four points (two goals, two assists) playing in all 42 games this season. Filangieri earned the Hockey East Rookie of the Week honor back Nov. 28 after posting his only two goals of the season versus Merrimack.
Filangieri is a rugged stay-at-home defenseman with superb skating ability. He is a fierce competitor who utilizes his size and strength very effectively in containing opposing players and clearing bodies from in front of his net. He is strong on skates and moves quite well up and down the ice. Filangieri is a very smart player who keeps things simple and is very conscientious defensively. He also possesses a very hard, heavy shot. While Filangieri has the ability to put the puck in the net, it’s highly unlikely that he’ll ever become an offensive-defenseman.
