Trivino, Chiasson return for home opener

Following last weekend’s successes in the Icebreaker Tournament, the Terriers will add some reinforcements to a forward corps that produced nine goals in its first two games. Junior center Corey Trivino (photo)and sophomore wing Alex Chiasson return from two-game suspensions due to violations of team rules.

The Daily Free Press reports that the pair will skate together in tomorrow’s home opener against UMass, possibly with freshman Matt Nieto on left wing. Another lineup change would move freshman Sahir Gill, who was Hockey East’s Rookie of the Week, to right wing on a line centered by sophomore Wade Megan.

► Nieto was ranked third among first-year college forwards in Inside College Hockey’s annual recruiting report. Charlie Coyle was ranked third, while Adam Clendening was rated #2 among blueliners. Overall, INCH rated BU’s recruit class third, behind Denver and Notre Dame.

► Nieto talked about his goals for the season and the player he emulates in a Q&A interview.

►’s new Daily Scarlet feature offers an anagram puzzle with the names of former Terrier captains and a preview of the weekend’s BU sports schedule presented by sophomore Sean Escobedo and women’s team junior Carly Warren.

► USCHO Hockey East columnist Jim Connelly has some thoughts about the short time from from first practice to first game and about BU’s initial games.

► The UMass Daily Collegian explains why the Minutemen’s power play was so effective last weekend against Minnesota.

The Boston Globe’s Nancy Marrapese-Burrell talks with College Hockey Inc. director Paul Kelly about the dual challenges of competing for players with Canadian major junior leagues and limiting defections to the NHL.

Looking back
Now that he isn’t balancing school work with icetime, what does former Terrier Nick Bonino do when not practicing or playing for the AHL Syracuse Crunch? Seems he’s quickly become proficient at a new dryland hockey skills game called “SuperDeke.” The Syracuse Post-Standard (scroll down a bit) says “it's like hockey whack-a-mole.”

Raising the banner
The Terrier Women’s team has its home opener tonight vs. Wayne State and, during opening ceremonies, will raise the Hockey East championship banner. The two-game series with the Warriors concludes with a 2 p.m. matinee tomorrow. The Daily Free Press previews the series.

BU Today looks at three newcomers to the women's program--Marie-Philip Poulin and Catherine Ward, who played for the 2010 Canadian Olympic team, and transfer Jenn Wakefield, a member of the Canadian National team--and discussed their potential impact with Coach Brian Durocher in a video clip.
