Former Rensselaer goalie and film maker Bobby Farrelly—best known for hit movie “Dumb and Dumber” — is bringing a senior squad of New England hockey stars to Sun Valley, Idaho, for this weekend’s ninth annual charity games to benefit the Atkins Park Penguins.  Among the skaters for Farrelly’s East Coast Snipers are three ex-Terriers: 6-4 blueliner Scott Shaunnessy, who turns 50 today and played for BU’s first Hockey East Tournament Champs; forward Mike Sylvia, who played on BU’s 1995 national championship (video) squad; and Kevin Schaefer, a defenseman on BU’s 2006 Hockey East champs (video).

Freshman Kevin Duane, with a goal and an assist in last weekend’s game, was named to the Hockey East weekly top performers list.
