Gameday Linkorama: The Denver Cup

Terriers, who arrived in Denver yesterday, a day later than planned, meet RPI in the first round of the Denver Cup. Gametime is 6:30 p.m. EST with radio coverage on WWZN in Boston and online. If BU reaches the tournament championship game, CN8’s New England and Atlantic divisions will broadcast that game. In addition, BU Sports Information Director Brian Kelley will be blogging live throughout the game.

We have tournament previews from BU Athletics—including links to game notes, live stats and the online broadcast—and from USCHO, College Hockey News, Inside College Hockey and the Troy Record.

Goalie Grant Rollheiser (photo), recovered from an injury, returns to the net for tonight’s game and fellow freshman Chris Connolly moves up to the Terriers’ first line with Colin Wilson playing in the World Junior Championships.

For senior forward Brandon Yip and sophomore defenseman Colby Cohen, the tournament brings them to the city where they may eventually play professionally. Both are Colorado Avalanche draft choices, as is Kevin Shattenkirk who also is at the WJCs.
