Camping with Chiasson and Bonino

Sophomore wing Alex Chiasson has been spending the first week of July in Frisco, Texas, at the Dallas Stars' development camp. A second round choice of the Stars in the 2009 draft, Chiasson sat down with Stars' fan site writer Mark Stepneski to talk about skating with other Dallas prospects, his first season at BU on and off the ice, and his expectations of playing a bigger role for the Terriers in 2010-11.

Former Terrier Nick Bonino arrived at Ducks development camp today where he’ll see some familiar faces—Stephan DeCosta from Merrimack, Jake Newton from Northeastern, Kyle Palmieri from Notre Dame and Mark Mitera from Michigan, among others.

Bonino and former BU captain Kevin Shattenkirk are among nearly 30 players--many former college stars--participating in a fundraiser for "The Big Assist" on July 14. The event to help provide critical care for Connecticut residents with spinal cord injuries was organized by former BC skater Ryan Shannon.

The Colorado Avalanche offers a video feature on Brandon Yip who scored 11 goals in 32 games in his rookie season, playing for former Terrier Joe Sacco.

2011 Terrier recruit Cason Hohmann will participate at the USA Hockey Select 17 development camp in Rochester, N.Y., beginning on Thursday. A Texas native now living in Michigan, Hohmann, a forward, scored 36 points in his first season with Cedar Rapids. He was one of the youngest players in the league.
