Looking back
NHL.com caught up with Brandon Yip to discuss his early NHL success--5 goals in 10 games since his call-up from the AHL--and the impact of his senior season at BU.
"Last season helped out tremendously, I think, in my career and my life," says Yip, who had 43 points and 118 penalty minutes in 45 games last season for the Terriers."It changed my work ethic around, being around a team with great leadership. Everyone was pulling for the same goal. It was pretty special to be part of that. I definitely learned a lot from it."

John Curry has been recalled from Wilkes Barre/Scranton to Pittsburgh by the Penguins. He was called up last season and played in three games.

Colin Wilson, now recovered from a painful injury, discusses the obstacles he’s faced in his first pro season.

Looking ahead
NHL Central Scouting has issued its midyear rankings of draft-eligible prospects. Charlie Coyle was #19 among North American skaters while Yasin Cissé was ranked at #83. 2010 recruit Sahir Gill, who began the season with the Chicago Steel, but has now returned to the BCHL Vernon Vipers, was not ranked. The other two 2010 class recruits, Matt Nieto and Adam Clendening, are eligible for the 2011 draft.

The Scouting Report published its assessment of Cissé prior to the foot injury that will sideline the winger from Quebec for the remainder of the USHL season.

Coyle has been named to the South squad for the upcoming EJHL All-Star Game.
