Two former Terriers will play management roles for the U.S. U-17 Select team mentioned above. Ken Rausch, a member of the BU 1995 national championship team, will serve as general manager. Clark Donatelli, a late 80’s BU standout and two-time U.S. Olympian, will be an assistant coach.
Former Terrier defenseman Adam Clendening was named to the AHL all-star team in his first two pro seasons, the first player to do so in more than a decade. Now he’s aiming for a spot on the Blackhawks roster. The Wheatfield, N.Y. native is in Chicago’s development camp, along with BU netminder Matt O’Connor.
