Linkorama--UPDATED

USA Hockey has named Terrier strength and conditioning coach Mike Boyle to the same position for the U.S. Women’s National Program.

Looking ahead
Western College Hockey blog's Chris Dilks took in last week's game between the NTDP U18s and Cedar Rapids. His report on skaters from both teams includes two future Terriers playing for the Roughriders:

NHL Central Scouting accidentally listed [2011 recruit] Cason Hohmann as 6'2" 192 lbs., in their first list. If he really was that big, and played the way he does, he'd maybe be the top overall pick in the draft. As it is, he's listed at 5'8" 160 lbs, which makes him far less attractive as a draft candidate. Hohmann was a kid that I thought was great at age 15, but start to fade as he got older and the competition got better, but to his credit, he's still the same playmaking waterbug that he's always been. Just sensational hands and always made a solid play any time he touched the puck. He should be an excellent college player at BU.

And finally '95--late '95, even--[2014 recruit] Anthony DeAngelo is the youngest player in the USHL this year. He's an absolutely incredible skater for his age, so much so, that you sometimes forget how old he is when his decision-making with the puck isn't quite at the same level. It's good to see him pushed like in the USHL though. Against AAA competition, he could skate his way out of a lot of difficult situations, whereas here, he'll have to learn how to be better with the puck. It's tough to compare him against some of the other top '95s I've seen, since he's playing such a tougher level of competition, but he's certainly among the top of his age group.

Looking back

Colin Wilson's goal with 2:32 remaining in the third period was the game-winner in Nashville's 3-2 victory over San Jose. For Wilson, who earned the game's top star, it was his seventh goal of the season and third in the past five games. Video clip.

John Curry stopped 29 shots in a 2-1 overtime win for Wilkes Barre Scranton over Abbottsford. Curry improved his record to 11-4.

Chris Drury returned to the New York Rangers' lineup after missing 31 games with a broken finger. The former Hobey Baker Award winner had 14 minutes of ice time in New York's 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.

Women's team
The Terrier Women’s team achieved the highest ranking in the program’s six-year history, moving up two notches to #3 in the country. Coach Brian Durocher’s squad, riding a six-game winning streak, finished the semester at 14-2-3. The team’s co-scoring leaders each earned Hockey East honors. Jenn Wakefield with 2 goals and 2 assists was conference Player of the Week and Marie-Philip Poulin with three goals was named Rookie of the Week.

Any chance that Boyle also does for the BU Women's team what he does for the Men's team? Would have to think that would help the women's program a ton in terms of recruiting, especially now with being named the national women's program coach.
