Midweek Linkorama--UPDATED

The Daily Free Press looks at the on-ice evolution of fan favorite and assistant captain Eric Gryba, who will be the subject of our next Q&A.

When a national champion struggles the following season, the media notices. The New York Times and both examine BU’s problems finding a winning combination.

WTBU offers its weekly Hockey East power rankings.

Hockey On Campus will be streaming live from 7-10 p.m. ET tonight with hosts Bernie Corbett and Paul McNamara speaking with a variety of guests from the college hockey world.

Looking ahead
Charlie Coyle, who received an A rating from NHL Central Scouting, was featured on the cover of the Greater Boston edition of the December ESPN RISE Magazine, which focuses on high school athletes. It traces his on-ice growth from his freshman year at Weymouth H.S. when his breakaway goal upset Malden Catholic in the state tournament to his current status as one of the EJHL's top scorers with the South Shore Kings.

Fellow 2010 recruit Matt Nieto is tied for the scoring lead on the NTDP U18s with 9 goals and 10 assists. He and BC recruit Bill Arnold have become a potent duo for the U18s who play at Union College on Friday. Teammate Adam Clendening, the lone defenseman in BU's 2010 recruit class, has a 2-8-10 line.

Sahir Gill’s hometown newspaper reports on his verbal commitment to BU.

The ScoutingReport, looking at potential NHL draft choices now in the USHL, posted a profile of Des Moines winger and 2010 recruit Yasin Cissé. According to the report, the 6-3, 208 Quebecois is “still growing into his frame.” The report goes on to call him a “disruptive forechecker” who “owns a powerful shot with a very quick release whether he was in open ice or traffic” and has “a knack for getting the puck on net.” Cisse currently has 13 goals in 18 games for the Bucs, tied for third best in the USHL.

Looking back
Prior to Saturday’s game against BC, the four Terriers who starred for the gold-medal-winning 1980 U.S. Olympic team --Jim Craig, Mike Eruzione, Jack O'Callahan and Dave Silk--were honored as that achievement approaches its 30th anniversary .

The Tennessean reports that Colin Wilson may be turning the corner from the injuries that have slowed his first preseason.

Now in his fourth ECHL season, former All Hockey East defenseman Bryan Miller leads the Alaska Aces blueliners in scoring with 12 points.

Since being traded from Charlotte to Gwinnett in the ECHL’s South Division, Jason Lawrence has two goals and an assist in five games.

Brian McGuirk has a 4-7-11 scoring line in 16 games with the Kalamazoo Wings while Gregg Johnson has six goals and eight assists in 24 games for the South Carolina Stingrays.
