Freshman Alex Chiasson, who scored a goal and two assists in BU's two-game sweep of Northeastern, earned his second Hockey East Rookie-of-the-Week. The freshman from Quebec had also earned rookie honors during the season's first week for a two-goal game against UMass.
Coach Jack Parker and the coaches of the other seven Hockey East coaches whose teams are in the playoffs participated in a media conference call today. Parker stated that Saturday's 4-3 win over Northeastern was the Terrier's "best game of the year" and that defensemen Colby Cohen and Kevin Shattenkirk, reunited on the blueline, had a strong weekend.
