If you missed the show Tuesday night, check out the podcast of the January 13, 2015 episode of the Bud Light UMass Hockey Show from The Hangar in Amherst on WHMP. Host Adam Frenier, head coach John Micheletto, and player guests Troy Power and Brandon Montour look back at last weekend's games vs. Maine and preview the upcoming home-and-home series against New Hampshire.
Montour was even interviewed by Ducks Daily:
When interviewed following his selection, Montour talked about why he chose to come to UMass:
"I think the biggest thing was the coaches. I love the coaches there. It's a great organization both school-wise and hockey-wise and it's not too far down the road from my house, meaning my family can come down whenever. It's just unbelievable there, in Hockey East, one of the best leagues in college hockey."
Several news outlets had coverage of Montour's selection:

"He's a real dynamic defenseman. You're talking about a guy who can run the power-play and put up points." -- @CraigJButton on Montour.-- Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) June 28, 2014
On @Montour93, Madden said he felt the team went for "that home run pick." Impressed with his ability to move to defense and produce.-- Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) June 28, 2014
Here is the portion of the piece that mentions Montour:
Committed to the University of Massachusetts, Montour leads all defensemen in the league with 52 points and is third with a plus-30 rating in 53 games for the Black Hawks. The 5-11, 186-pound right-hander is No. 186 on Central Scouting's midterm rankings. He also has five goals and 22 points on the power play.
Rajanen likes what he sees in Montour, whose ambition outside of hockey is to become an architect.
"He is having a great year; very solid puck play," Rajanen said. "He's producing points and has some bite to his game. I believe he's a solid defender and good prospect."
