Looking ahead and looking back

When Union College defeated Colgate Saturday night for its third consecutive ECAC Tournament title, it became the first school to do so since BU—then an ECAC member—won four straight titles (1974, 1975, 1976 and 1977) during the first four years of Jack Parker’s tenure as BU’s head coach. BU had also won the title in 1972, giving the Terriers five titles in six seasons.

Looking ahead
2015 recruit Maxim Letunov (photo) scored three times in a pair of weekend games.  In Youngstown’s 7-3 win against the NTDP U17s on Friday, he earned  first star honors with a pair of even-strength goals , while 2014 recruit J.J. Piccinich added an assist. Saturday, Letunov’s power play goal and an assist by Piccinich on another goal gave the Phantoms a second-period lead over Indiana, but the Ice rallied for a 4-3 win. Letunov, who is third on the Phantoms in scoring, has a 19-23-42 line.UPDATE: Letunov recorded an assist and Piccinich had two helpers in the Phantoms' 5-3 loss the U18s Sunday night.

2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter, who had led Austin Prep to the Massachusetts Super 8 Tournament finals, scored his first USHL goal on Saturday in Sioux City’s 5-2 win against Omaha. On Friday night, he registered an assistance in the Musketeers’ 7-1 loss to Sioux Falls.

2014 recruit Jack Eichel assisted on a power play goal and a short hander as the NTDP U18s defeated Chicago, 5-2.  With the two assists, Eichel takes over the NTDP U18 scoring lead with a 32-37-69 scoring line.  UPDATE: Eichel assisted on two goals Sunday in the U18s 5-3 win against Youngstown and now has a team-high 71 points. 

2015 recruit Vas Kolias, who played this season for the Chicago Mission 18U team, is now on the roster of the USHL Indiana Ice. The 5-9, left-shot defenseman from Schaumberg, Ill., was drafted by the Ice in the second round (21st overall) of the 2013 USHL Futures Draft and is expected to play for Indiana next season. 

Looking back
Charley Coyle’s 8th goal of the season pulled Minnesota even with Detroit at two apiece, but the Red Wings came away with a 3-2 win.

Ryan Whitney (photo), who has spent most of this season with AHL San Antonio—along with Matt Gilroy and Wade Megan—was recalled by Florida and skated in Sunday night’s 6-2 loss to Anaheim. Megan scored his 8th goal of the season and added an assist as San Antonio doubled up Charlotte, 4-2.
Two goals by Corey Trivino and one from Ben Rosen helped ECHL Stockton edge Alaska, 5-4 in overtime. Trivino also contributed two assists, giving him his first four-point game as a pro, while Rosen also added a helper.

Women’s Team
Sophomore Sarah Lefort was named an ACHA Second-Team All-American following a standout season in which she leads the nation with 32 goals and is fifth in overall scoring with 55 points. She's the second Terrier to achieve All-American honors. Catherine Ward, who skated for Canada's gold-medal Olympic squad in Sochi last month, was a second-team All-American in 2011.

A trio of Terrier recruits played pivotal roles in opening game wins for Team USA and Team Canada in the IIHF World U18 Championships in Hungary.   2014 recruit Erin O’Neil stopped 16 of 17 shots is the U.S. opened the tournament with a 6-1 thumping of Russia.
