Another Terrier joins the coaching fraternity

USHR is reporting that former Terrier captain Brian McConnell has been hired as an assistant coach on Jamie Rice’s staff at Babson College. McConnell, who led the 2004-05 team, has since played two seasons in the ECHL, at Fresno and at Trenton where he teamed with Mike Pandolfo, Gregg Johnson and other former BU players. Terrier fans will recall McConnell's "hattrick" of a goal, assist, and highlight-reel open ice hit on BC's Chris Collins in the 2003 Beanpot Championship game, won by BU, 3-2.

And, speaking of the Beanpot, a news feature, originally on Si.com, lists the "101 Things a Fan Must Experience Before They Die." The Beanpot is number 72, just a few slots down from the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships. When first published, the article had Beanpot written as two words and being played in December. Alert fans prompted the corrections.
