In the midst of a banner campaign at Boston University, goalie Matt O’Connor has become a hot commodity in NHL circles.

Per TSN, 14 clubs have expressed an interest in signing O’Connor, the 6-foot-5 undrafted free agent that recently backstopped the Terriers to the Beanpot Trophy.

O’Connor, 23, has reportedly met with a number of teams already and will continue to court suitors before signing anywhere. He’s 17-3-4 this year with a .929 save percentage and 2.10 GAA, his first as BU’s clear-cut No. 1 — last year and the season before he split time with Sean Maguire, Pittsburgh’s fourth-round pick at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, who is sitting out this year as a medical redshirt.
