Cissé scores, but Quebec loses

2010 recruit Yasin Cissé scored Team Quebec’s first goal and assisted on the second, but Canada West doubled that output in a 4-2 win in the World U17 Challenge in British Columbia. Cissé (photo) is the only member of the Quebec squad playing junior hockey in the U.S.

At the WJCs in Ottawa, Team USA takes on Kazakhstan today in what should be a tuneup for tomorrow’s showdown with the host team, Canada. NHL.com’s Adam Kimmelman’s feature story focuses on the longstanding friendship between current linemates—but Hockey East rivals—Colin Wilson and James van Riemsdyk. Check out the video clip with shots of Wilson growing up and discussing his relationship with his Dad, former NHL forward Cary Wilson.

The Terriers return to the ice Friday, meeting RPI in the first round of the Denver Cup tournament. BU will adjust its lineup due to the absence of Wilson and Kevin Shattenkirk and the host team is doing a shuffle of its own with Tyler Bozak out of the lineup due to injury. Moving up to forward is Pioneers' defenseman Patrick Mullen, whose father, Joe, played for BC in the late ‘70s.

Looking Back
Former Terrier blueliner Tom Morrow, who spent last season in German is skating for the ECHL Bakersfield Condors.

Chris Bourque has been called up again from AHL Hershey to the Washington Caps. Bourque played four games for the Caps earlier this season, joining ex-BU All-American defenseman Tom Poti.
