Midweek Linkorama

The Terriers maintained their #1 position in the USCHO/CBS College Sports Poll. Notre Dame and fast-charging Michigan are #2 and #3 respectively. rates prospects in the Penguins organization and assistant captain Brian Strait is ranked 6th while former BU All-American goalie John Curry is 9th.

Colin Wilson earned Hockey East Player of the Week honors and Nick Bonino, Chris Higgins, Jason Lawrence and Kieran Millan also earned kudos for their efforts. Wilson shared Inside Hockey Player of the Week honors with Michigan State goalie Jeff Lerg.

HockeyBuzz’s Julie Rolenhymer announcer her Hobey Baker finalists and picks Wilson to take home the trophy. While there is no NCAA rookie-of-the-year award, but Rolenhymer calls out Millan as a top newcomer in college.

2009 Recruit Alex Chiasson was featured in Sports Management Worldwide/International Scouting Services 2009 Draft Prospect Performers of the Week.

High-scoring Salmon Arm forward Conor Morrison, whom we noted last month was on BU's recruiting radar, has chosen Harvard over BU, Wisconsin and North Dakota.

If you’d like one more recap of the two-game series in Maine, we have one from The Daily Free Press.

Earlier this week two former Terrier standouts, New York Rangers' captain Chris Drury and Blues' assistant captain Keith Tkachuk went head-to-head on the ice. Neither hit the score sheet in a 2-1 St. Louis win, but managed to come togther on a few big hits. The two also collaborated several years ago to fund the state-of-the-art training and condition facility in Agganis Arena.

Finally, CHN’s Adam Wodon calls to our attention a blog written for The Hockey News by former UAA forward Justin Bourne, son of New York Islander standout out Bob Bourne. The piece candidly examines his career to date and his love-hate relationship with the sport. If Justin doesn’t succeed in pro hockey, he’s got the tools for a career as a writer.
