BU has five come-from-behind wins this season, equaling last season’s total.

Last week NHL Central Scouting issued its fall list of NCAA players to watch. Of the seven players given “A” ratings, two are Terrier freshmen Matt Nieto and Adam Clendening. Gill received a “C” rating.

Nieto also was the subject an a Q&A interview by West-Coast blog, in which he discusses his reasons for choosing BU and his thoughts about playing for Jack Parker.

Poll story
BU remained in second place in the USCHO weekly poll, the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine weekly poll, and INCH’s power rankings.

Looking back
After nine NHL games, Kevin Shattenkirk is “turning heads” in the league and among Avalanche Nation with support building for him to stay with Colorado even after injured teammates return. Chris Nichols of quotes Avs’ forward Matt Duchene saying :

"I remember our first minicamp, two summers ago. He was here and I said, 'Wow, this kid can play."I remember being excited for him to finish college and get here and he's really showing what he can do."

Anaheim has assigned Nick Bonino to Syracuse where he began the season. The former Terrier forward had no points in 11 NHL games.

Women’s team
The Terrier Women’s team gained a split of its weekend series with Boston College, blanking the Eagles, 1-0, Sunday. Jenn Wakefield’s 11th goal of the season was the lone tally, supported by 22 saves by freshman goalie Kerrin Sperry, who earned Hockey East Rookie of the Week honors.
