Red Hot Hockey update; Schaeffer signs

Red Hot Hockey update
The Greater New York Alumni Club and the national organization are planning a three hour pre-game reception and pep rally prior to the BU-Cornell matchup at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 24. The venue is the Club Bar & Grill inside The Garden and, while details are still being finalized, we’ve learned that University President Robert Brown will attend the event along with former Terriers and 1980 Olympic gold-medal winners, Mike Eruzione, David Silk and Jack O’Callahan--all BU Athletics Hall of Fame members. The office of the Dean of Student is planning a post-game party as well, to complete a very full—and hopefully turkey-free—day.

Advance to the Reading railroad
Four-year starting defenseman Kevin Schaeffer has signed with the Reading Royals, the Los Angeles Kings’ ECHL affiliate. Schaeffer had been drafted by the Nashville Predators in 2004. Ex-Terrier Justin Maiser also is on the Royals’ pre-season roster.

I don't think Maiser is with the Royals. He played in Dayton last year.

Runners get Maiser from Dayton

The Phoenix RoadRunners of the ECHL, an affiliate of the Phoenix Coyotes and the San Antonio Rampage, have acquired the ECHL rights to forward Justin Maiser from the Dayton Bombers in exchange for the ECHL rights to forwards Justin Aikins and Chanse Fitzpatrick, and future considerations.

Nice catch, 247. Maiser's name was on the Reading roster last week, but has been deleted. Good luck to the much traveled Maiser in Phoenix. He'll always be remembered for hattrick against BC in the 2003 Hockey East seminfinal, including the GWG in double overtime.
