Friday Linkorama

The Chiiliwack B.C. Progress looks back at an eventful year for Terrier incoming freshman goalie Grant Rollheiser. Just 12 months ago, he joined the BCHL Trail Smoke Eaters, getting off to a slow start, but Rollheiser had a breakthrough season that brought a BU scholarship and made him a sixth round draft choice of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

A Pittsburgh Post-Gazette feature updates us on former All-American goalie John Curry who earned All-Rookie honors at AHL Wilkes Barre/Scranton in his first pro season. Curry goes into the season as the number three netminder in the Penguins organization and will be looking for an opportunity to earn some NHL playing time.

The Post-Gazette also reports on the recovery of Ryan Whitney from off-season foot surgery. Whitney, who won’t return to the Pittsburgh lineup until at least mid-November, is in the second year of a six-year contract with the Pens.

Former Terrier defenseman Tom Morrow is back in North America after spending a season with the Hannover Indians in Germany. The 6’ 7” blueliner has joined the Anaheim Ducks’ ECHL affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors. Announcing the signing team officials indicated that Morrow would go to the camp of the Ducks’ AHL club, the Iowa Chop (is that a porkchop or like the Braves’ “Tomahawk Chop”?) and may find himself playing at both levels this season.

The Terriers first official practice is set for two weeks from tomorrow, Saturday, October 4, with the exhibition game against the University of New Brunswick the next day, October 5. Captain’s practices, of course, are already underway.

All of BU's regular season and playoff games will again be aired on WWZN-AM 1610 in Boston with Bernie Corbett and Tom Ryan once again handling the play-by-play and color duties. In addition, the Corbett-hosted "All-Access" program, covering all BU sports, will air weekly on WWZN this season with scheduled dates for the first semester listed in an BU athletics news release.
