Future Terrier: Corey Trivino
Among the four recruits who have verballed to BU so far this summer, Corey Trivino is unique because he is the only Canadian in the group. Moreover, he is the first forward from Ontario recruited to BU since Chris Heron back in 1996.
A native of Etobicoke, Trivino is a product of the Toronto Marlies organization and will spend the next two seasons with the Stouffville Spirit of the OPJHL to protect his NCAA eligiblity. A feature article in New England Hockey Journal takes a look at Trivino and his decision to play for Stouffville.
Prior to the 2006 OHL draft, one scouting report said "Trivino is a player that has a ton of offensive tools. He possesses great feet, displaying quickness and the ability to hit another gear when it is required. Couple this with his high level of puck handling skills, and you have a player that can carry the puck and beat opponents one-on-one while playing at high speed. He is excellent on the rush." Ontariodraft.com called attention to his "Incredible hands, especially around the net."
A 6'0" 160 lb., left-shot center, Trivino scored 17 goals and 22 assists with just 4 penalty minutes in 30 games with the Toronto Marlboros Minor Midgets. He also has played for Travis Howe's East Coast Selects in the Prospects Tournament and others. Two other future Terriers, Colby Cohen and Kevin Shattenkirk, are East Coast Selects alums.
Trivino plays his first regular season Junior A game on Sept. 10. The Stouffville site reports that "Rookie phenom Corey Trivino had two goals and an assist" in the team's final exhibition game.
