Hynes live chat at 1 p.m. ET today

NTDP U18 and US World Junior Championships coach John Hynes participated in a CSTV live chat earlier today. The transcript is here. Two current Terriers, defenseman Brian Strait and forward Colin Wilson, have earned spots on the US WJC team that will compete in The Czech Republic later this month. Both are products of the NTDP program.

Hynes, who was a member of BU’s 1995 National Championship team, recently spoke with College Hockey News about the U18 team.
2008 recruit Vinny Saponari, one of Hynes’ current U18 players, has had the hot hand of late. He scored a goal at Agganis Arena in the Dec. 8 exhibition game against the Terriers, matching the goal scored for BU by his brother Victor, a freshman. Both brothers were on the ice for the opening faceoff.

This past weekend, Vinny netted an unassisted game-winning goal for the U18s in their 3-2 win against Minnesota Duluth.
