Former Terrier netminder Jason Tapp is an assistant coach on Frozen Four bound Union College. Now in his fifth season at Union, the Kelowna, B.C. native has mentored the Dutchmen’s goalies who have been recognized as the ECAC’s top netminder in three of the past four seasons, including Colin Stevens this year.  

Tapp played for BU from 1998-2002 and then spent seven seasons playing minor-league hockey.  He became the first Terrier to wear a uniform number above 40, donning #83 to honor his sister, born in 1983, who suffers from curvature of the spine.

Eight members of Terrier hockey team visited young patients at the nearby Franciscan Hospital for Children.

Looking ahead
2014 recruits Jack Eichel and Johnathan MacLeod have been named to the 22-player Team USA roster for the IIHF Under 18 World Championship, beginning April 17 in Finland. Fast Hockey will live stream all Team USA games.

Three members of BU 2015 recruit class made the score sheet in an offense-filled 9-6 win for the NTDP U17s against Sioux City. Defenseman Charles McAvoy (photo) scored the game-winner in the third period, while teammate Jordan Greenway added a pair of assists.  Greenway now has 40 points (15G, 25A) and McAvory has 17 (7G, 10A). Bobo Carpenter scored in the third period for the Musketeers. Since joining Sioux City following his high school season at Austin Prep, the right-shot center from North Reading has four goals and three assists in eight games.

2016 recruit Clayton Keller scored twice and added an assist for Shattuck-St. Mary’s in a 7-4 win over the Boch Blazers in a preliminary round game at the US Tier 1 U18 Nationals in Green Bay. 2014 recruit Chase Phelps (photos) assisted on two goals for the Sabres who move on to the quarterfinals. Keller and Phelps share the team lead in points in the tournament with four apiece. SSM plays Belle Tire today.

Keller was selected by Windsor with the last pick in the second round of today’s OHL draft, 40th overall. “Arguably the top American 1998 prospect,” according an Over The Boards tweet, he has reportedly accepted an invitation to join the NTDP U17s next season.
