Gilroy honored at Hobey Baker banquet

Senior co-captain Matt Gilroy, named 2009 Hobey Baker Award winner the day before BU’s 4-3 overtime win against Miami in the national championship game, officially received the trophy as college hockey’s top player on Thursday at the the Hobey Baker Awards Banquet in St. Paul, Minn. Terrier Head Coach and NCAA Coach of the Year Jack Parker attended the event with Gilroy, who will graduate from BU on May 17 before beginning his pro career with the New York Rangers.

Looking ahead
2011 recruit Charlie Coyle scored a hattrick for the Cape Cod Whalers in an 11-0 win against the Boston Jr. Ranger in the New England ProAm Pre-Draft Showcase. A 6-2 right wing who plays for Thayer Academy, Coyle has a 3-2-5 line after two games. He was assisted on two of the goals by Tom O’Regan, Jr., son of 1982-83 BU co-captain, Tom O’Regan. The younger O’Regan, who has a 1-3-4 line thus far and is among the top New England prospects for 2011 plays for St. Sebastian’s, which recently named former Harvard defenseman Sean McCann as its new head coach.

Justin Courtnall’s third goal of the RBC Cup tournament gave Victoria a 2-1 lead in its semifinal matchup with Humboldt, but the Broncos added two more goals to eliminate the Grizzlies. Courtnall is the son of former NHL star Geoff Courtnall, who is the Grizzlies’ coach.
