USA caught up with former Terrier co-captain and Hobey Baker winner Matt Gilroy at the IIHF World Championships, his first experience representing his country.

Looking ahead
Red Line Report, an independent international scouting service that annually ranks college recruit classes, has pegged the Terriers’ 2010 class as third best, behind Minnesota and North Dakota. Earlier this year, College Hockey 247 ranked the top 50 recruits for 2010 with four Terrier recruits making the list: LW Matt Nieto (#3) , RW Charlie Coyle (#15), RD Adam Clendening (#22) and LW Sahir Gill (#39).

Looking back
Former Terrier netminder Tim Regan has been a member of the BU Athletics Hall of Fame since 1993. Last Wednesday, the Most Outstanding Player in the 1972 NCAA tournament and former standout at LaSalle Academy was inducted into the Rhode Island Interscholastic League Athletic Hall of Fame. Among those in attendance were former Terrier John Grady, Tom Mellor, a teammate on the 1972 U.S. Olympic team, and blog contributor CDRAL.

Regan, who teamed with Dan Brady in goal to lead BU to back-to-back NCAA titles (1971 and 1972), holds the Terrier single season records for save percentage (.929) and goals against average (1.77).

After earning a Silver medal at the 1972 Sapporo Olympics, Regan replaced an injured Brady for the then-four-team NCAA tournament. After yielding an early goal in BU’s 4-1 semifinal win over Wisconsin, he blanked Cornell, stopping all 39 shots in a 4-0 win.

Former Terrier All American forward Boomer Ewing, now skating for the ECHL Reading Royals, is playing in game seven of the Royals' American Conference final series against Cincinnati tonight. Last year, Ewing was the ECHL's rookie of the year, playing for Wheeling.
