Sports Museum HOF to induct Parker

The Sports Museum at the TD Banknorth Garden has selected Terrier Head Coach Jack Parker as one of the 2009 inductees to its Hall of Fame. Parker, entering his 37th season behind the BU bench, will be honored along with longtime friend and rival, BC Head Coach Jerry York. Details about the June 24 event are in a BU Today article and, if interested in attending, click on this E-vite from the Sports Museum.

Jr. National Camp
Sophomores Vinny Saponari and David Warsofsky are among 43 players invited to US Junior National Team Evaluation Camp. 2009-10 Terrier captain Kevin Shattenkirk and Colin Wilson were members of last year’s Junior National Team that finished fifth in the World Junior Championships.

Terriers to take on Fighting Irish Irish
A match-up of college hockey powers that many hockey fans had anticipated in the 2009 NCAAs—but never materialized—will take place next season at Agganis Arena. According to Notre Dame’s posted schedule, the Fighting Irish, who finished second to the Terriers in the national polls but lost in the NCAA regionals, will play BU on Tuesday, Oct. 20.

BU and Notre Dame have met only twice previously, both times in holiday tournaments. En route to the program's first NCAA title in 1970-71, the Terriers beat the Irish, 7-3 in the Boston Arena Christmas Tournament. In 1995-96, the teams clashed in the Badger Showcase, with BU winning, again 7-3 .
