IBUH #14--Quinn, Ryan, Roy

Episode 14 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, freshman swingman T.J. Ryan and former BU forward Travis Roy.  

 A freshman on the Terriers 1995-96 squad, Roy was paralyzed when he missed a check and crashed into the boards at Walter Brown Arena, just 11 seconds into his first shift during BU’s season opener vs. North Dakota.  Today , he is a motivational speaker and an artist, and his  charitable organization, The Travis Roy Foundation, raises funds for spinal cord injury research and for providing life-enhancing adaptive equipment to individuals with spinal cord injuries. His #24 is currently the only retired BU hockey number. Next month it will be joined by  #6, the number of his close friend and former BU hockey coach, Jack Parker.

The Daily Free Press provides updates on the injuries that have depleted the Terrier roster.

Looking ahead
The Scouting Report looks ahead to the 2015 NHL draft and where BU 2014 recruit Jack Eichel might be selected early in the first round.

SB Nation College Hockey takes a closer look at BU’s most recent recruit for 2014, Buckingham Brown & Nichols defenseman Brien Diffley who led Burlington High School to a state title in 2012 before moving to the BB&N Knights’ blueline where he’s become a “hot commodity.”

2015 recruit Maxim Letunov (photo) scored his 14th goal of the season and added an assist for Youngstown, but the Phantoms were outscored, 7-4, by Indiana, which got a goal and assist from former Terrier Sam Kurker. Letunov, a 6-2 center from Moscow, has a 14-15-29 line in 34 games and is the Phantoms' third leading scorer.

Looking back
Nick Bonino scored his 16th goal of the season, rapping home a rebound, to bring Anaheim within a goal of Winnipeg in the third period, but the Jets dealt the Ducks their first regulation home loss.
