Travis Roy Foundation featured on NESN tonight

The Travis Roy Foundation will be featured during a half-hour program on NESN tonight, beginning at 10:30 p.m. The charitable organization, which assists spinal cord injury survivors and funds research, was named for and established by the Terrier forward who, in October 1995, suffered a spinal cord injury during his first varsity shift.

Several members of last season's championship team are on the ice in pro rookie camps. Former Terrier co-captain John McCarthy, who signed with San Jose and picked up an assist in his first rookie game, was surrounded by familiar faces from Hockey East in the Sharks' line-up: Northeastern's Louis Liotti, UMass's Cory Quick, BC's Benn Ferriero and Nick Petrecki and Vermont's Dean Strong.

Over in Centennial, Colorado, Avalanche rookies, including Brandon Yip, are being put through their paces by Avs' coach Joe Sacco and AHL affiliate coach David Quinn. Yip, the only player to score the game-winning goal in two Hockey East championship games, was featured in a Meet the Rookies column by Mile High Hockey. In this photo display, Yip is in shot #16 and Quinn is in shot #12.

Colin Wilson, USA Hockey's 2009 College Player of the Year, began Predators' rookie camp yesterday and the Nashville Tennessean looks at his chance of earning the number three center spot to begin the season.
