Catching up

Last weekend, Colin Wilson met the Nashville media for the first time since signing a multi-year contract with the Predators. Wilson, who led Hockey East in scoring while earning First Team All-American and All Hockey East honors, covered a number of topics including how his return to BU for his sophomore season helped him to improve his game and mature off the ice.

Terrier co-captain John McCarthy was one of five BU student-athletes to be awarded The Scarlet Key, one of BU's highest academic honors. McCarthy, who signed a professional contract with the San Jose Sharks after enjoying his best scoring season as a Terrier, graduated last week with an economics degree from the College of Arts and Sciences.

Freshman Ross Gaudet’s brother Chad is a standout midfielder for Virginia’s lacrosse team, which plays Cornell in the NCAA semifinals this Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.

Jason Lawrence talked with BU Today about his four-year Terrier career.

Looking back
Both Tom Poti of the Washington Caps and Ryan Whitney of the Anaheim Ducks were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs when their respective teams lost in the conference semifinal series. But John Curry has been called up to the Penguins who are playing Carolina in the Eastern Conference final.

Two former Terriers remain in the hunt for the AHL’s Calder Cup. Chris Bourque of the Hershey Bears is facing off with Kevin Schaeffer and the Providence Bruins in the Eastern Conference final. The series is tied at one game apiece. Bourque has a 2-11-13 line in 13 playoff games.

Bryan Miller and the Alaska Aces take on the South Carolina Stingray, beginning this Friday, in the ECHL’s Kelly Cup Finals. Miller, who was an All Hockey East defenseman in 2004-05, has 10 post-season points following a 40-point regular season.
