Recruiting beat goes on; recalling BU's D.C. Miracle--UPDATED

Terriers have added more firepower to its 2015 recruit class with the commitment of Sherwood Park Crusaders right wing Sean MacTavish. The 6-0, 180 lb., native of Edmonton was third in regular-season scoring in the AJHL with a 28-44-72 scoring line and was named the league’s player-of-the-month for December with 16 points.

MacTavish, who is the son of former NHLer and current Oilers General Manager Craig MacTavish, added another seven points in ten playoff games before Sherwood Park was eliminated by Spruce Grove and 2014 BU recruit Brandon Hickey.

During his first season with the Crusaders, he was named to the AJHL North Division all-rookie team and played in the CJHL Prospect Games, scoring a pair of goals in Team West’s 5-0 win against Team East. Video interview.

Before joining the Crusaders, MacTavish played for The Brunswick School in Greenwich, Conn., teaming with BU freshman Kevin Duane for a combined 102 points.

According to one of THFBlog’s sources, a coach from another school termed the MacTavish verbal “a total steal for BU."

This Day in Terrier Hockey History: April 11, 2009--The D.C. Miracle.

Down two goals in the NCAA championship game against Miami with less than a minute-and-half left in regulation, Terriers put on a rally for the ages. With the BU net empty, Zach Cohen’s backhander from in tight found space between the Redhawks goalie’s pad and the post. Then, with the clock running down, Hobey Baker Award winner Matt Gilroy backhanded a pass to Nick Bonino in the right circle for the one-timer that knotted the score with 17.4 seconds left as ESPN's Gary Thorne exclaimed, “Unbelievable!” and the BU bench erupted.  And, 11:47 into overtime, Colby Cohen’s deflected slapper floated over Cody Reichard’s shoulder to give BU its fifth NCAA championship and the third of Coach Jack Parker’s career.

Looking back 
John Curry’s first NHL start in four seasons was a successful one as he turned aside 43 shots in Minnesota’s 4-2 win against St. Louis and earned first-star honors.  The first of the two goals he gave came off the stick of Kevin Shattenkirk, who fired home a wrister from the high slot on a power play.

Earlier this year, Curry was named to the 50th anniversary BU Athletics Hall of Fame class that will be inducted on May 31.
