Summer Ice

Junior right wing Brandon Yip recently concluded a week at Avs Development Camp in Centennial, Colorado, Tom Morrow was in Sabres camp in Amherst, N.Y.—probably not posing for Mutt & Jeff photos with Nathan Gerbe—and Andrew Glass, one of the youngest players in Caps camp, was holding his own there. On Frozen Blog reports that: “Glass, who won’t enroll in freshman composition at BU until 2008, looks anything but out of place against young world-class competition.”

Brian Strait, Jason Lawrence and possibly one or two other Terriers are skating on Tuesday nights at the Bridgewater Ice Arena in the Hub City Summer Pro League featuring college and professional players. But the Terrier with the most unusual summer skating experience has to be sophomore Zach Cohen (pictured) .

Last summer Northern Israel was filled with military units headed to the Lebanese borders to fight Hezbollah. This summer, just south of that border, at the Canada Centre rink in Metulla, the combatants are four hockey teams—U.S.A., Canada, France, and the host— competing in the first World Jewish Hockey Championship, July 13-20.

Team U.S. headed by General Manager Neil Smith (W. Michigan alum) and Coach John Anderson (Chicago Wolves) has 13 current or former NCAA players on its roster including Terrier winger Cohen. Bobby Weston played for the Terriers in 1997-98 and 1998-99 before finishing his career at Babson. The goalies are Harvard alum Dov Grummet-Morris and former Michigan Wolverine Noah Ruden. Also on the roster are UMass forward Matt Burto and Miami’s Nathan Davis, one of two collegians to play for team USA in this past spring’s IIHF World Championships. Canada’s squad features Merrimack goalie Andrew Brathwaite and ex-Vermont Catamount Oriel McHugh. Israel’s squad includes Oren Eizenman, who scored the final RPI goal in last season’s 4-4 tie with the Engineers, and his brothers, Alon and Erz, and is coached by former Montreal head coach Jean Perron.

We’ll post later this week an expected feature about the tournament, which was originally scheduled for last summer, but postponed due to the hostilities. For those interested in the full rosters, see the comment below.

In addition to Oren Eizenman, Canada's Seth Klerer plays for RPI.

Eizenman and his brothers have played for the Israeli National Team several times. They are eligible because their father was born in Israel. Oren was the Most Valuable Forward in 2005 when Israel won their Division II championship and were elevated to Division I for 2006. They were out of their class at that level and were relegated back to D-II for 2007. The 3 brothers didn't play this year.

Alon Eizenman played for Penn State's club team. I don't know about Erez
