100 club for Connolly; Hall of Fame for Tkachuk

The Boston Hockey Blog spoke with Chris Connolly about reaching the 100 point mark for his career.

CHN’s TakeAway examines BU’s 2-1 win over New Hampshire on Thursday.

Excalibur Sports asks whether the outdoor hockey gendre has “jumped the shark.” Unlike its three Beanpot rivals and other New England schools, BU passed on the opportunity to play another game at Frozen Fenway , a subject Jack Parker had discussed with The Boston Hockey Blog last month

Looking Back
This coming Monday night, former Terrier Keith Tkachuk (photo) will be one of five inductees into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel

The power forward from Melrose, Mass., played for BU’s 1991 Hockey East champions and NCAA finalist team, before embarking on an 18-year NHL career in which he scored 1,065 points (538-527). He becomes the ninth Terrier inducted, joining Jack Garrity, Jack Kelley, Dick Rodenheiser, Jim Craig, Mike Eruzione, Jack O’Callahan, Dave Silk and his BU teammate, Tony Amonte.

Among the other honorees is Mike “Doc” Emrick, the “Dean of American hockey announcers” who becomes the first media member inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame. On Dec. 3, 2004, Emrick called play-by-play (video) for CSTV in what would be Jack Parker’s 700th career win, a 3-2 victory against BC in the teams’ final meeting at Walter Brown Arena.

Looking back—Across the Pond
Four former Terriers are continuing their careers in Germany’s top professional league, the DEL. John Laliberte (7-11-18) is skating for Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg. Ken Magowan (7-12-19) is with Adler Mannheim. Scott King (8-11-19) is with the Hannover Scorpions and John Curry (2.59, .923), who represented Team USA in the recent Deutschland Cup, is tending goal for the Hamburg Freezers.
