Coach Jack Parker and the coaches of the other three Hockey East tournament semifinalists participated in a teleconference with the media yesterday. His remarks are here. Other coaches comments.

Parker and BC's Jerry York appeared on NESN last night and discussed their upcoming tournament games.

The Hockey East Championship Press Kit is here. All decade teams for each HE member school on page 11.The Hockey East All Decade team will be recognized during third period of the BC-Vermont game on Friday. Hockey East awards will be announced on Thursday night.

Maine ranks fourth nationally in scoring with a 3.57 gpg average. BU is 14th with 3.27. In games against Conference opponents (including last weekend’s quarterfinal round), both teams have 101 goals in 30 games.

Sophomore Dave Warsofsky is the national co-leader in shorthanded goals with four.

The Terriers returned to the national rankings, in 20th place in the current USCHO/CBS Sports poll.

Captain Kevin Shattenkirk was named to INCH's All Hockey East team for 2009.

Looking back
John McCarthy scored his 10th goal of the season in Worcester's 6-2 win against Hershey. Chris Bourque registered his 20th for the Bears.

Pete MacArthur scored his seventh goal of the season in Rockford's 3-2 shootout win over Houston. Mac has 37 points for the Icehogs.

Sean Sullivan picked up his 11th goal in San Antonio's 5-2 win against Peoria. With 43 points, he's among the top scoring defensemen in the AHL.

MaxPrep Sports profiled the career of former Terrier Kevin Schaeffer, who is now skating for Charlotte in the ECHL .

Looking ahead
2010 recruit Sahir Gill scored a goal and an assist as Vernon eliminated Quesnel in the second round of BCHL playoffs with a 5-0 win. Gill, a left wing who rejoined the Vipers in January after spending half a season in the USHL, rejoined the Jones brothers on Vernon's first line, where he'd played during the Vipers' 2008-2009 RBC Cup championship season. He's now third in playoff scoring for Vernon with 3-3-6.

2010 recruit Charlie Coyle of the South Shore Kings was named the EJHL Rookie of the Year. A 66-point scorer for the Kings, Coyle, who will join former high-scoring Kings Kevin Gilroy and Ben Rosen at BU next season, received strong support from Coach Scott Harlow in an article on the USA Junior Hockey Web site:

"We were fortunate to get Coyle on the team this year,"said
Harlow, who says Coyle’s only weakness is his unselfishness.
“He’s the complete package with his skill and work ethic and
makes everyone around him better. He may not be the
perfect hockey player, but he’s pretty close.”

Coyle, a right-shot center, also plays the point on Kings' power plays. One of his two goals in the EJHL championship game came on a shot from the blueline. The Kings, who lost to the Monarchs in the EJHL final, will next play in the USA Hockey Tier III Junior Nationals in Marlborough, Mass., beginning March 25.
