When the Nashville Predators traded center Jason Arnott to the Devils, it provided former Terrier All-American and Hobey Baker finalist Colin Wilson (AP Photo) a window to become a top six former in just his second pro season. Bleacher Report talked with Wilson about being ready for prime time.

“Coach Parker taught me to just battle through adversity,” Wilson said. “There are many things that come up; sometimes you’re not playing well, sometimes you have an injury and he just taught me how to deal with it and how to develop my all-around game.”

Playing for a successful program at BU also helped bolster Wilson’s confidence.

“You’re on a team that generally wins,” Wilson said. “When you’re on a team with players who generally win, it lets you know what it takes for you to win, what is put into it.”

Despite his second-year status, Wilson also was lending a hand at rookie development camp

Even after three years working with BU strength and conditioning guru Mike Boyle, 2009-10 MVP Nick Bonino found himself facing a new physical challenge at the Ducks' conditioning facility. With nine NHL games and his first pro goal under his belt, Bonino is looking to earn a starting spot in Anaheim.

At the recently concluded Dallas development camp, Stars management put a stamp of approval on sophomore Alex Chiasson’s progress in his first year as a Terrier. The Quebec native talked about his initial season on Comm Ave. and the Star’s laissez-faire approach to his development. “It’s been really fun,” he said halfway through the week-long event.
“We’ve been practicing and going back to basics with coaches, doing a lot of stuff. It’s been pretty fun meeting a lot of guys and being here in Dallas for the first time.”

At this point, Chiasson figures to spend all four years of his college eligibility at BU as he matures physically and assumes more
responsibility at one of the highest-profile NCAA programs with a rich tradition of winning.
Two members of BU’s 2010-11 blueline corps are lacing ‘em up for the annual New England Pro-Am Hockey Senior Chowder Cup Tournament beginning this Wednesday in Foxboro, Walpole and Canton, Mass. Sophomore Sean Escobedo is playing for Dynamo Hockey, while incoming freshman Garrett Noonan, fresh off an RBC Cup championship with the Vernon Vipers, is rosters with the Beantown Bullies Jr. Major. Tournament schedule (July 21-25).

Looking ahead

BU's two newest recruits, 2014 defenseman Anthony DeAngelo and 2013 forward Adam Erne, are in Rochester at USA Hockey's Select 15 Development Camp. After three days, DeAngelo has a 2-2-4 line, tied for 15th overall and tied for best among defensemen. Erne has a pair of assists, while earning kudos from an Amateur Hockey Report scout: "He showed why he is headed to BU with his tenacious play."
