Wednesday Linkorama

Episode 3 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s conversations with Head Coach David Quinn, junior forward Cason Hohmann and former BU All-American and NHLer Shawn McEachern (photo). 

McEachern is sixth on BU’s all-time points list with 186 (79g, 107a) and a junior rang up 82 points, second most ever for a Terrier, en route to first-team All-American honors and leading BU to the 1991 Hockey East championship (video) and the NCAA championship game.  The following season, the speedster from Waltham skated for the U.S. in the 1992 Olympic games, then joined the Pittsburgh Penguins for their run to the 1992 Stanley Cup title. In 1996, he played for the gold-medal U.S. squad in the World Cup of Hockey

McEachern played professionally through the 2005-06 season, finishing up with the hometown Bruins, and had a 256-323-579 scoring line in 911 NHL games.  A 2008 inductee to the BU Athletics Hall of Fame, he’s now head coach of The Rivers School.

Looking back
Matt Nieto and John McCarthy, co-captain of the 2008-09 squad, returned to Agganis Arena yesterday as the Shark’s practiced at BU’s home ice, preparing for tonight’s matchup with the Bruins.

Nick Bonino converted a goal-mouth pass for his fourth goal of the season, giving Anaheim a 1-0 lead, but the Ducks fell to Toronto, 4-2 on Phil Kessel’s hat trick

Brandon Yip, McCarthy's linemate at BU, also made another cross-country flight as the forward was recalled to Phoenix from AHL Portland for the second time this season.

Former Terrier netminder Kieran Millan was named CHL Goalie of the Week following a pair of Denver Cutthroat victories in which he stopped 72 of 75 shots (.960 save percentage). The second win, 3-2 over Tulsa, featured an 18-round shootout with Millan stopping 16 of 18 chances. Now in his second season with Denver, the Colorado Avalanche draft choice won the goalie of the week award twice last year.

Also in the CHL, Millan’s goaltending partner for four seasons at BU, Grant Rollheiser dished a shutout in his first start of the season as Bramption blanked Arizona, 4-0. Rollheiser stopped all 31 Sundog shots.

Looking ahead
2014 recruit J.J. Piccinich leads all USHL skaters in power play goals with five.
