Looking back

Former Terrier wing Matt Wright has been named head coach at the New Hampton School in New Hampshire. Wright, who played on four Final Four squads between 1994 and 1997, scored both the final goal the last Beanpot played in the old Boston Garden (a 5-1 win over BC) and the final and game-winning goal in the last college hockey game played there (BU’s 3-2 win over Providence in the 1995 Hockey East championship game).

John Laliberte has signed on with the German pro league's Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg, where Ken Magowan and Gregg Johnson are playing this season. has taken notice of Boomer Ewing’s standout rookies season in the ECHL. Returning to the city where he was born, Ewing has is top scorer on the Wheeling Nailers with a 43-48-91 scoring line in 67 games.

Former All-American goalie John Curry set a Wilkes Barre/Scranton record with 31 wins last week and has since earned his 32nd “W.”
