February 2022- Callahan’s rights have been dealt to the Boston Bruins for a 2024 seventh-round pick. A Massachusetts native, he is currently finishing his senior year at Providence College. After a big offensive sophomore campaign, Callahan has yet to replicate those numbers. In his third year as the Friars team captain, he has three goals and 14 points in 34 games this season. It’s expected Callahan will sign an entry-level deal with the Bruins when Providence’s campaign finishes.  Keith Duggan

September 2021- After being one of the top scoring defensemen in the NCAA during 2019-20, Callahan fell back to Earth last year. That’s not to say there is no potential anymore, as his three goals and 14 points in 25 games was still pretty good. The captain for Providence College, he was once again his team’s top scoring d-man. Look for Callahan to have a big senior season then sign his ELC with Arizona. Keith Duggan

May 2020- After never really showing much offensively in the USHL and his freshman year at Providence College, Callahan broke through as a sophomore. He had five goals and 28 points in 34 games, good for fourth among Hockey East defensemen. Callahan posted eight multi-point games and a career-long point streak of seven games from December 29- January 18th. He also tied for first among all NCAA defensemen with 19 power-play assists. Voted a First Team Hockey East All-Star and was a Walter Brown Award Semifinalist, New England’s Best American-born Division I College Hockey Player. Good size (6-2, 196 lbs), athleticism and a strong defensive game, Callahan looks like a possible sleeper as a fifth-round pick from 2018. While last year was impressive it’s hard to jump on the bandwagon just yet after one big season, especially considering his numbers were most likely helped by his role on a power play with two of the best offensive players in college hockey. His offensive instincts and shot aren’t hugely impressive making it hard to get overly excited about Callahan yet. Keep an eye on him though, Callahan is a prospect on the rise. Keith Duggan
