Linkorama—Boomer joins Baby Pens

Bryan Ewing has signed an AHL contract with the Penguins’ farm club in Wilkes Barre-Scranton where he’ll be reunited with ex-Terrier All-American goalie John Curry, last year’s AHL All-Rookie goalie. Ewing enjoyed his best season as a Terrier in 2007-08 with 43 points (and 108 for his career) earning second team RBK All-American and second team Hockey East all-star honors. He also was the Hockey East scoring champion with 35 points.

2009 recruit Ethan Werek, who formed a two-man wrecking crew with incoming freshman Corey Trivino for the Stouffville Spirit last season, made this week’s Hockey News Hot List. Werek will spend his final junior season in the USHL will the Indiana Ice where he’ll find himself battling future teammates Max Nicastro (Chicago Steel) and Sean Escobedo (Tri-City).

During last week’s Little League World Series, won by Hawaii, asked Chris Drury to look back at his experience on the mound in Williamport in the 1989 championship game, when he pitched Danbury, Conn., to the title--and the path that led him to a national championship at BU, the Hobey Baker Award, the NHL and The Stanley Cup.

Trivia question: Drury (video) is the only NHL player to win a Little League championship, but two other NHLer played at Williamport in the World Series. And, they played for the same Canadian team. Who were they?
