College Hockey News reports that All-American defenseman Matt Gilroy suffered a high ankle sprain in practice and will miss the next three weeks, putting added strain on the Terrier defense. We’ve been following Matt’s brother Kevin who’s enjoying a stellar season in the EJHL with the South Shore Kings. The younger Gilroy has rung up 27 goals and 25 assists, currently good for second in league scoring.

A blog reader requsted an update on 2008 recruit Andrew Glass. The left winger, a senior at Nobles, is tied for 10th in New England prep school scoring with 19 goals and 16 assists. He had a powerplay goal in Wednesday’s win over The Governor’s Academy. A veteran talent evaluator says “Glass is a very good prospect and because he’s playing on a team not endowed with many veteran players, has to carry much of the load offensively. His skating is very good as are his hockey sense, hands and puck skills.”

The NTDP U18, in Finland for the Five Nations Tournament, came from behind to edge Sweden, 4-3 in overtime in the opening game. Terrier recruits had a hand in three third-period goals with Vinny Saponari assisting on the first, David Warsofsky assisting on the second and Warsofsky potting the tying goal with just 15 seconds left in regulation.

Sorry, if this sounds like a broken record, but Corey Trivino and Ethan Werek were all over the scoresheet for Stouffville (OPJHL) tonight in its 10-4 win over Villanova. Trivno’s goal and two assists were eclipsed by Werek’s hattrick plus two helpers, giving the 2009 recruit a team-leading 68 points in just 36 games.

The perfect gift for the ultimate hockey fan? For just $5,495, you can spend five days doing Herbies for Mike Eruzione, Jack O’Callahan and other members of the 1980 Olympic goal medal team at “Miracle Fantasy Camp."

Finally, a pre-Super Bowl piece we’ve just come across relates Mike Grier’s connections to pro football through his father, Bobby, now in the Houston Texans’ front office. There’s a link to some video highlights of the ex-Terrier All-American, now in his 11th pro season.
