Tuesday Linkorama--UPDATED

On Monday, Danny O’Regan, who scored in each of the two games against Vermont, was named to Hockey East’s weekly top performer’s week. Today, the second of his two goals, featuring a spin-o-rama and a goal-mouth deke, was #1 on the NCAA’s Top 5 Plays of the Week. (video)  

The Daily Free Press talked with senior goalie Anthony Moccia, who saw his first-ever regular-season action in Saturday night’s loss to the Catamounts, surviving two UVM power plays.

BU Today sat down with first-year coach David Quinn, who talked about his up-and-down inaugural season, and asked several Terriers about life with the new guy.

Looking back

Another former Terrier turned coach is earning kudos for success in prep hockey. NHL standout Tony Amonte, now in his fourth year as Thayer’s head coach, has returned his prep school alma mater to the ranks of New England’s top preps. The Tigers are third in the latest USHR poll with a 14-2 record, rebounding from last season’s 6-19 record. Amonte score 126 points in two seasons at BU helping the Terriers reach the NCAA Final Four both years (1990 & 1991). He would amass 900 points in 15 NHL season and scored the championship goal in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey (video).
Looking ahead

SB Nation reports Coach Quinn is watching 2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter and #3 ranked Austin Prep vs. #7 Springfield Cathedral tonight. Carpenter, who was ranked #146 in the recent NHL Central Scouting midterms, got AP on the board with a wrist shot, in a game that ended in a 3-3 tie.
ESPN Boston recap

This past Saturday, Carpenter scored on a blueline blast to help the Cougars claw their way back from two goals down to edge #9 Arlington Catholic, 3-2.

With his hattrick against Benilde St. Margaret’s Saturday, sophomore Clayton Keller, a 2016 BU recruit, is Shattuck St. Mary’s Prep’s top scorer with 55 points (25-30). 2014 recruit Chase Phelps, with three points against BSM, is close behind at 47. OverTheBoards.com’s Jasper Kozak observed:

Keller is playing at an insane level. He struggled to be a consistent impact forward initially (just a 98) at the U18 level but now, he's starting to take over games. Really smart on the puck and natural scoring ability
