Kevin Gilroy commits for 2008

With much speculation in the media and on the Web that All-American defenseman Matt Gilroy will sign a pro contract at the end of the season ( see previous post; scroll down), it’s likely that uniform #97 will go out of circulation. But the Gilroy nameplate will still appear on a set of Terrier jerseys next season. Matt’s younger brother, Kevin Gilroy, has given BU a verbal commitment for next season. Kevin, a 6’1" right wing now in his second year with the EJHL South Shore Kings, finished the regular season with a 32-26-58 line, fourth in the league in scoring and first in goals scored. Two years ago, playing at Brewster Academy, he led the Division 2 prep team in scoring (31-17-48).

If there are no defections, BU’s forward corps for 2008-09 will be:
Seniors: Chris Higgins, Jason Lawrence, John McCarthy, Steve Smolinsky, Brandon Yip
Juniors: Zack Cohen, Luke Popko
Sophs: Nick Bonino, Joe Pereira, Victor Sapnari, Colin Wilson
Freshmen: Chris Connolly, Ross Gaudet, Kevin Gilroy, Andrew Glass, Vinny Saponari, Corey Trivino.
