Linkorama

Check out the newest link in the sidebar to the right: “Terriers in the NHL” It’s a page from a terrific site, Legends of Hockey.net that lets you look up any NHL player, past or present by team. This particular page lists all former Terriers—alphabetically from Peter Ahola through Scott Young—who have played in at least one regular season NHL game with a link to each one’s pro and amateur stats.

The Avalanche sent Brandon Yip to its AHL affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters, whose head coach is former BU associate head coach David Quinn. Yip, who impressed during his turn at Avs camp, had no points in exhibition games, but a fight earned him a 5 minute major

The Blackhawks have sent former Terrier linemates Pete MacArthur and Boomer Ewing to their Rockford/AHL affiliate. Ewing was the top rookie in the ECHL last season. And—here’s one we missed last spring—MacArthur was voted top rookie on Rockford for 2008-09.

David Van Der Gulik is in his fourth pro camp with Calgary, for whom he appeared in six games last season. If the Flames should return him to the AHL, he’ll be in familiar surroundings as Calgary’s affiliate has moved from Quad City to Abbotsford, B.C., which is VDG’s hometown.

Matt Gilroy had another solid performance in the Rangers' 5-2 win against the Bruins, breaking up a 3-on-1 rush and creating offensive opportunities. He deserved an assist on NY's fourth goal. It was Gilroy's first game in TD Banknorth Garden since BU's 1-0 win the Hockey East Championsip game.

Looking ahead
2010 recruit Charlie Coyle picked up a goal for the South Shore Kings in their 8-2 pre-season win against Capital District in EJHL play.

Check back later today for the first Q&A interview of the season: Terrier Captain Kevin Shattenkirk.

There's no way Gilroy doesn't make the Rangers team, right?
