Today, USA hockey's Web site takes a look at NTDP U17 Coach John Hynes, a one-time Terrier walk-on and now one of the bright young stars of coaching. The article discusses the impact on Hynes' career of his years as a player and volunteer assistant at BU. Hynes guided the development of current freshmen Brett Bennett, Luke Popko and Brian Strait for the past two seasons and led the U18s to the IIHF World Under-18 Championship last Spring.

INCH has introduced a Monday feature, First Shift, which provides a quick recap of the previous weekend’s college hockey activity….An feature ranks the ten “Ultimate Hockey Experiences in North America.” The Beanpot was rated third. First? The Quebec International Pee-Wee Tournament....Coach Parker’s comments about Saturday’s 3-2 exhibition win over New Brunswick appeared in the Daily Free Press. Look for a new penalty-killing scheme this season. Parker acknowledged the team needs to work on the power play…Two more Hockey East season previews have appeared, one from the Boston Globe and the other from Dave Hendrickson and Scott Weighart of USCHO.

We’ve added a new entry to the sidebar list of recruiting links. This Web page tracks scoring totals for the NTDP U18 team. Through nine games, Colin Wilson is tied for the team scoring lead, while both Kevin Shattenkirk and Colby Cohen are among the top five. In the U18s 3-2 OT loss to Michigan this past Sunday, Wilson, who scored his sixth goal of the season, centered the first line between future Hockey East opponents Jimmy Hayes (BC) and James Van Riemsdyk (UNH).

to be fair, the ESPN listing says "in no particular order".

Great to see our USNDTP guys doing so well on a team that impressed the Michigan fans recently.
