Wilson heads BU draft parade

Colin Wilson, selected in the first round ( #7 overall) by Nashville, was the first of five Terriers taken in the first 95 picks--six overall--of the 2008 NHL entry draft. Wilson’s selection was announced by former Terrier forward and current Predators assistant general manager Paul Fenton. Later in the first round, Nashville selected major junior goalie Chet Pickard, a close friend (photo) of Wilson’s from their days growing up in Winnipeg.

We have links to audio and video interviews with Wilson and coverage in New England Hockey Journal, USCHO and the Boston Herald.

The Terriers taken during the second day of the draft are: Corey Trivino, second round, #36, Islanders; (2009 recruit) Max Nicastro, third round #91, Detroit; Vinny Saponari, fourth round, #94, Atlanta; David Warsofsky, fourth round, #95, St. Louis; and Grant Rollheiser, sixth round, #158, Toronto.

More details later.

Grant Rollheiser was also drafted by TOR in Rnd 6. A positive sign for the solution to our goaltending problem

For those at the blog here that wanted to learn more about Rollheiser there's audio up on with his long time goalie coach Pasco Valana. We'll have Reollheiser audio early next week.
