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, nhl.com 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.
