Game Day: Terriers take on the X-Men

Terriers hit the ice at Agganis Arena tonight in an exhibition game against St. Francis Xavier, ranked seventh last season among CIS teams. The X-Men, who beat St.Thomas, 4-2, on Thursday and played the Terriers to a 2-2 tie two seasons ago, are a physical team with a strong goalie, Joey Perricone and CIS Rookie of the Year Jason Bast.

Senior goalie Kieran Millan (photo) is expected to play at least two periods in goal for BU, which will dress extra skaters for the exhibition game. Game time is 7 p.m. The contest will be streamed on BU All-Access (subscription).

Looking ahead
2012 recruit Marc Hetnik Jr. scored a goal and an assist last night in Vernon’s 5-2 victory over Westside. Hetnik has a 1-3-4 line in his first three BCHL games.

2012 recruit forward Mike Moran, who was the first star in a Penticton win last week, was traded to the Victoria Grizzlies on Wednesday when an injury forced the Vees to seek another frontline defenseman.

Three 2013 recruits, Danny O’Regan, Sam Kurker and Kevin Duane, participated in last weekend’s Junior Bruins Shootout, earning praise from U.S.Hockey Reports. O’Regan skates for the Cape Cod Whalers in the Mass Select Midget U18 League, coached by former BU standout forward Ed Ronan, a member of the 1993 Stanley Cup champion Canadians. O’Regan, who leads the Whalers in scoring, is the son of former BU captain Tom O’Regan. His Whalers teammates include Ronan’s son, Corey, touted by USHR as a budding elite prep player, and Mark Fidler, whose dad is former Terrier Mark Fidler, a 30-goal scorer on the 1978 national championship team.

2013 recruit Brendan Collier, also playing in the Elite Midget U18 league, leads the GBL Bruins in scoring following a 2-goal, 3-assist effort in a 7-0 shutout of the Springfield Rifles.

Women’s team
A pair of goals by senior captain Jenn Wakefield, three assists by junior transfer Isabel Menard and 31 saves by Kerrin Sperry led the #2-ranked Terriers to a 4-1 opening-game win against #7 North Dakota. The teams play again this afternoon at 3:00 p.m. at Walter Brown Arena.
