And then there were none

Seven former Terriers who were competing in the Stanley Cup playoffs had their seasons end when they were eliminated in opening round series. For Tom Poti (Washington), Mike Grier (Buffalo), Jay Pandolfo (New Jersey), Colin Wilson (Nashville) Adrian Aucoin (Phoenix), and Brandon Yip and Coach Joe Sacco (Colorado), it’s wait ‘til next year.

There is one player call-up from the AHL. Former Hockey East MVP and All-American goalie John Curry, however, has joined the Pittsburgh Penguins for the second round, now that the Wilkes Barre Penguins were eliminated in Calder Cup play. He most likely would only play in case of an injury. Also moving up to the big club is Baby Pens' assistant John Hynes, a former BU forward and coach of the U.S. National Development Team Program.

Also skating on is 2010 recruit Sahir Gill (photo), whose Vernon Vipers won the Doyle Cup in seven games, defeating Spruce Grove. Vernon joins the five-team field for the RBC Cup, Canada’s Junior A Championship. Vipers are defending RBC Cup champs. Gill has a 6-9-15 line in 19 playoff games, skating on the Vipers top line.
