IBUH Episode 7; New video documentary

Episode 7 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Coach David Quinn, freshman center Robbie Baillargeon, now tied for the team lead in points with nine and former Terrier captain and current St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk.

Shattenkirk came to BU in 2007 after two standout season with the U.S. NTDP program and produced 78 points in three varsity seasons.  During BU’s 2008-09 national championship season, he scored BU’s first goal of the season in the IceBreaker against North Dakota and then assisted on Colby Cohen’s overtime game-winner in the NCAA title game against Miami.

Both of BU’s games against visiting North Dakota will be televised. Friday’s game is on NBC Sports Network while Saturday’s tilt will air on NESN.

BU Athletics has launched a season-long documentary, chronicling David Quinn’s first season as BU’s Head Coach, with episodes available on YouTube. The initial episode of “BU Hockey: The Season,” titled "A New Day," focuses on initial practices and the season opener, and includes Quinn addressing the team before, during and after the UMass game. The documentary will culminate in a 60-minute feature at the end of the season.

Looking ahead

2014 recruit Jack Eichel’s seven-point weekend—including a hattrick against Green Bay on Friday—earned him USHL Forward of the Week honors. Eichel also took time to provide a pep talk (video) to the visiting Reston, Virginia, Raiders Bantam ‘98s.

2014 recruit J.J. Piccinich and 2015 recruit Maxim Letunov—teammates on USHL Youngstown—were among four Phantoms named to the NHL Central Scouting  Players to Watch List for the 2014 draft.

Former BU blueliner Adrian Aucoin announced his retirement after 20 professional seasons, including 17 in the NHL, with a total of 399 points in 1,108 NHL games. NHLPA noted that:
Aucoin scored his first career NHL goal on his first shot in his first regular season game on May 3, 1995, he scored his first career playoff goal in 1995 on his first shot in his first playoff game, and he also scored his first goal on his first shot in his first and only All-Star Game appearance in 2004.
