Millan named HE Defensive Player of the Week

For the second time this month, Goalie Kieran Millan has earned Pure Hockey Defensive Player of the Week honors in Hockey East's weekly release. He was similarly honored on Jan. 5, after making 33 saves in the Denver Cup championship game. Co-captain Matt Gilroy was last week's Defensive Player of the Week. Chris Higgins, Chris Connolly and Colin Wilson all earned recognition for their efforts in the sweep of New Hampshire.

The Daily Free Press wrapped up the weekend series with New Hampshire, providing a recap and a feature on the Terriers top line of Higgins, Wilson and Jason Lawrence, which has a combined 74 points.

BU has now killed 20 consecutive penalties and 73 of its opponents last 78 power play opportunties.

Looking ahead
2009 recruit Justin Courtnall’s hattrick on Saturday led Victoria (BCHL) past Merritt, 6-3, and enabled the 6’3” left wing to reach the 50-point (17-33) mark for his final BCHL season. Last year, he totaled 51 points.

US NTDP U18 wing Jeremy Morin who visited BU earlier this year, but also is considering Major Junior hockey, reached the 20 goal mark with a hattrick against Adrian College, which he followed up with a goal and two assist effort against Mahoning Valley/NAHL.
