Looking Back, Looking Ahead

Go further west, young man
We recently reported that the Quad City Mallards, for whom Matt Radoslovich played the past two seasons, were disbanded when the Calgary Flames moved their AHL affiliate to that city. Rad, one of only a few unrecruited walk-ons in recent memory to play for the Terriers, now has a new hockey home. He’s still “for the birds” but this season it will be in California as a member of the Fresno Falcons of the ECHL. Radoslovich, a former New Jersey high school Player of the Year at Bergen Catholic, was recommended to Jack Parker by a former BU football player whose identify never was determined.

Speaking of the now-defunct Mallards, Rad’s teammate, ex-BU goalie Jason Tapp, ignited a mini-brawl last season between the Mallards and Rockford Icehogs last season, which has been posted to YouTube (below).

2008 recruit Andrew Glass, whose participation at Washington Caps development camp was featured here last month (video interview included), was profiled recently by his hometown newspaper (it somehow sneaked past us last month). As Glass prepares for his senior season at Noble & Greenough School, he talks about his coaches--his dad and Nobles’ Brian Day-- the importance he places on academics and his goal of reaching the NHL after playing at BU.
