Looking forward: Another recruit for 2008


BU has a fifth forward for next year’s recruit class. Ross Gaudet, a 6-0, 200 right wing with the EJHL Bridgewater Bandits, will walk on next season. In 21 games for the Bandits, he has 14 points, having scored his 7th goal Sunday in a win over the Jr. Bruins.

Gaudet previously played for Austin Prep, leading the Cougars to the Super 8 semifinals as a senior with 24-20-44 scoring line. He was named to the 2007 Boston Globe Super Team, chosen as a Globe All Scholastic as a junior, and selected 2007 Catholic Central League MVP.

His coach at Austin Prep said Gaudet was among the the "top one, two or three players in the state," describing him as a strong and fast skater with good vision of the ice. Globe: “one of the MIAA’s most intelligent and confident skaters…Unstoppable at times as a physical presence for the Cougars."


  • Also in the EJHL, Kevin Gilroy, younger brother of Terrier defenseman Matt Gilroy, has been a hot scorer of late with six goals in the past five games for a total of 15, good for fourth best in the league. Kevin is a right winger for the South Shore Kings.

  • The other forwards in BU's 2008 class are Corey Trivino (Stouffville/OPJHL) Vinny Saponari (NTDP U18s), Andrew Glass (Nobles) and Chris Connolly (Omaha/USHL). Blog contributor srsterrier posted a preview of Saponari and fellow BU recruit David Warsofsky yesterday, after watching the U18s play Yale over the weekend. Connolly collected his 11th goal of the season tonight in the Lancer's 5-4 OT win over Des Moines. He also added a goal in the shootout that decided the game.

  • In a November 16 post, we reported that Justin Fox, son of ex-Terrier John Fox, was a freshman a Salem State, playing for his dad’s BU teammate, Coach Bill O’Neill. The generational connection will be duplicated next year when Aaron O’Callahan, son of ex-Terrier All-American defenseman, co-captain and 1980 U.S. Olympian Jack O’Callahan will be a first-year player for his BU teammate and another former Terrier co-captain, Terry Meagher at Bowdoin. The younger O’Callahan, a forward, is a senior at Taft.

Looks like we're in for a rough season.
