Friday Linkorama

On Saturday, BU takes on another non-conference opponent, Holy Cross, at Agganis Arena. The Daily Free Press talked with junior assistant captain Justin Courtnall about preparation for the Atlantic Hockey team that the Terriers last played three seasons ago. The DFP also reported that injured forward Yasin Cissé and defenseman Ryan Ruikka won’t return to the lineup this week.

Heading into BU’s fourth game, junior assistant captain Alex Chiasson and sophomore Sahir Gill (photo) are tied for the team scoring lead with four points apiece. What bodes particularly well for the Terriers is that—as Coach Jack Parker pointed out on Inside Terrier Hockey—senior Corey Trivino and junior Wade Megan have been his best performing forwards to date.

The Terrier’s schedule of TV games continues to grow. BU’s game at Notre Dame on New Year’s Eve will air leave on Versus, soon to be rebranded as NBC Sports Network.

Bostonia profiles Elliott Dribben, BU’s fan for all seasons and all Terrier sports for more than 40 years.

The Boston Hockey Blog takes note of the 16th anniversary of Travis Roy’s tragic accident in his first college game, as well as his continuing impact on BU’s hockey program.

►With no BU hockey scheduled tonight, you can take a look at the Vermont Catamounts who will be at Agganis Arena on Nov. 18. The Cats’ game against Minnesota airs tonight at 7 p.m. ET on NESN and Fox Sports North.
