Thursday Linkorama

2009 recruit Max Nicastro was named to the team USA roster for the World Junior A Challenge next month in Alberta. Nicastro, who is in his second season with the Chicago Steel, was a third-round draft choice of the Red Wings last June. The right-shot blueliner from California is still growing, now listed at 6-3, 193 on the Team USA roster.

The NHL announced its players-to-watch list for the 2009 draft. Defenseman Sean Escobedo received a B rating and forward Wade Megan earned a C. With BU in need of 4-5 forwards for the 2009 class, some of the uncommitted names on the list are likely among the Terriers’ recruiting targets.

Milestones for Women’s team
Earlier this week, Coach Brian Durocher’s women’s team found itself ranked for the first time in the program’s four years—checking in at 10th in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll. Tonight, there was more cause to celebrate as the Lady Terriers upset powerhouse New Hampshire, ranked 4th, for the first time in eleven tries, 3-2. Sophmore Lauren Cherewyk scored the game-winner, her second goal of the game.
