Powers to scout for Dallas; Carpenter powers Sioux City in Russia

Former BU assistant coach Buddy Powers continues his hockey career as a scout in the Dallas Stars organization. Powers, who played three seasons at BU, including Jack Parker's first full season at the helm, later was head coach at Rensselaer and Bowling Green, before returning to BU as an assistant to Parker and to current head coach David Quinn last season.

NBC Sports reports that freshman center Jack Eichel will participate in the 2014 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game in Buffalo’s First Niagara Center on September 25. Full rosters for the event, now in its third season, will be announced next week.  Junior Matt Lane played in the inaugural Prospects Game in 2012.

Looking ahead
2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter (Sioux City photo) scored a pair of goals to lead Sioux City past Red Bull of Salzberg, 7-2, in their first preliminary round game at the Junior Club World Cup in Ufa, Russia. The 5-11, right-shot forward from Reading, Massachusetts tied the game at one apiece in the first period on an unassisted goal and gave the Musketeers a 4-2 lead in the middle period with a power play marker.  .

Earlier, in an exhibition game against Vityaz Chekhov, Carpenter’s extra-attacker goal knotted the game at 3-3 in the waning seconds of the third-period, but the Musketeers lost, 4-3 in a shootout.

2016 recruit Hank Crone scored a hat trick and added an assist to earn player of the game honors as the U.S. Select 17's routed host team Germany, 8-2, in the Five Nations Tournament. The win gave the U.S squad the silver medal and came a day after it had been shut out by the Czech Republic. Team USA broke open the game in a three-and-a-half minute span in the middle period when two of Crone’s goals bookended his one helper. The 5-8 right-shot playmaker, who skated for the Dallas Stars Elite U-16's last season, signed a tender with USHL Omaha for the 2014-15 season.

2016 recruit Clayton Keller talked with the Belleville News-Democrat about expectations for his two years with the NTDP program before beginning his Terrier career. Keller spent last season with the Shattuck St. Mary’s prep team, which he led in scoring (36-41-77 in 51 games) despite being the youngest player on the roster. Keller and current BU freshmen Chase Phelps (66 points) helped lead the Sabres to the 2014 Tier I U-18 national championship.

Looking back 

Former BU MVP Alex Chiasson is the latest member of the Terrier hockey family to accept the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise funds for ALS research. Chiasson, who was traded from Dallas to Ottawa during the off-season, challenged former Terrier head coach Jack Parker to follow suit, which he did.

Former Terrier captain Wade Megan (photo) has signed a one-year contract to remain with the AHL San Antonio Rampage. The left-shot center from Canton, N.Y. began last season with the ECHL Cincinnati Cyclones. After playing in 16 games for the Cyclones, he was promoted to the Rampage and recorded an 11-6-17 line in 43 games .  Megan then returned to the Cyclones for their post-season, tallying 10 goals and three assists to help them reach the Kelly Cup finals.

Former BU forward Ryan Weston has signed on with the San Diego Jr. Gulls as assistant coach of the 16AAA squad.

Women’s Team
Three Terriers have been named to the National U-22 squads of their respective nations: Junior Sarah Lefort—last season’s Hockey East Player of the Year and a second team All-American—and freshman Victoria Bach earned spots on Hockey Canada, while sophomore Maddie Elia was rostered by Team USA.

Last season’s captain, Louise Warren (photo), was selected by the Calgary Inferno in the third round of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League draft. The Boston Blades made ex-Terriers Kaleigh Fratkin and Taylor Holze their fifth and 14th round picks.
