Thursday Link-o-rama

The Daily Free Press today published its annual hockey supplement. It includes features on Captain Brian McGurik, Pete MacArthur and the trio of netminders who will try to fill John Curry’s skates. A piece on Agganis Arena emerges more as a look back to the days of 3805 filling low-ceilinged Walter Brown Arena.

All Access Sign Up
While the anticipated announcement has not yet appeared on the BU athletics Web site, there now is a link to sign up for All-Access service for this season. On the men's hockey page, in the red "schedules" block under the UNH game, click "watch" and you can register. All Access provides the video feed from the Agganis Arena scoreboard synched with the radio broadcast team of Bernie Corbett and Tom Ryan. The price for the season, which includes all home games, some women's games and a few basketball games, remains $19.95. A veritable bargain.

In a USA Hockey feature article on former U18 captain Kevin Shattenkirk, his NTDP Ron Rolston compares his play with NHLers Tampa Bay's Dan Boyle and Dallas blueliner Sergei Zubov. Shattenkirk was a football standout in gradeschool, but when the emerging hockey star went to The Brunswick School, his hockey coach insisted his gridiron exploits be limited to placekicking.

Sully settles in
The St. Petersburg Times looks at how ex-Terrier captain and Bruins head coach Mike Sullivan is fitting in and assuming expanded responsibilities as the Tampa Bay Lightning’s new assistant coach. A favorite Sullivan story is told by Corbett. During the NHL lockout season, the Terriers played an exhibition against a group of mostly NHL level alums, including Mike,, who Corbett coached. Following the game, Sullivan’s father cornered Bernie and in perfect deadpan told him, “I want to talk about my son’s icetime.” Sullivan’s parents will have an added rooting interest in the Terriers next season when their godson, NTDP U18 defenseman David Warsofsky, will be a freshman. Eight games into the U18s season, Warsofsky is the team’s leading scorer with 3-4-7/ The U18s, who lost to Colorado College and Air Force last weekend, have this week off.

Alums hit the scoresheet

Last night’s NHL schedule had some good performances for ex-Terriers. Keith Tkachuk’s goal and assist led the Blues past the Blackhawks, while Jay Pandolfo scored for the second straight game as the Devil’s edged the Penguins and Ryan Whitney, 5-4. Over in the AHL, in his last outing for Red Wings’ affiliate Grand Rapids, Carl Corazzini scored the overtime winner against Manitoba, beating ex-BCer Cory Schneider.

Looking ahead
The Stouffville Spirit’s opponent tonight was Couchiching, but the guys doing the cashing in at the net were future Terriers Corey Trivino (2008) and Ethan Werek (2009). Each rang up a pair of goals and a pair of helpers in a 7-0 win. Trivino opened the scoring with an assist going to Werek. The two reversed roles on the second goal and the rout was on.
