Future Terriers find the net; 17 former Terriers in NHL camps

2017 recruit David Farrance scored four times—three unassisted—as the Syracuse Stars 16U defeated Springfield, 6-2, yesterday at the Boston Junior Bruins Shootout. He added an assist in the Stars' second game, a 6-0 win against P.A.L Islanders. The Stars are undefeated in seven USPHL games, oustscoring the opposition, 50-4.  Farrance, a defenseman who has points in every game, leads the team in scoring with an  8-6-14 line.

On Friday, at the USHL Fall Classic, 2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter scored the game-winner for Sioux City on a shorthanded goal with 1:09 left in regulation, as the Musketeers edged Omaha, 2-1. He also assisted on Sioux City’s first goal.  Last night, the former All-Scholastic center for Austin Prep scored again; but the Musketeers lost to Sioux Falls, 4-2.

2016 recruit Hank Crone scored his first USHL goal as Omaha outlasted Des Moines, 9-7.

Looking back
Providence Journal’s Mark Divver talked with David Warsofsky, who, with a vote of confidence from Boston GM Peter Chiarelli, is pursuing a spot on the B's NHL roster.

Vancouver Canucks see newly acquired Nick Bonino playing a key role this season, especially on the power play and possibly on the team’s top line with the Sedin brothers.

Ottawa coach Paul MacLean has similar high expectations for Alex Chiasson, acquired from Dallas, handing him a spot on the Senators second line along with power play time.

Three ex-Terriers are in NHL camps on Professional Tryouts: Brandon Yip (Anaheim), Justin Courtnall (Islanders) and Ryan Whitney (St. Louis).

Eleven other ex-Terriers are in NHL camps: John Curry and Charlie Coyle, Minnesota; Colin Wilson and Garrett Noonan, Nashville; Alex Chiasson and Eric Gryba, Ottawa; Kevin Shattenkirk and John McCarthy, St. Louis; Matt Nieto, San Jose; David van der Gulik, Los Angeles; and Adam Clendening, Chicago.

BU’s 2009 national championship team has advanced to the second round of the NCAA Frozen Four’s Finest tournament, which aims to determine—by fan vote— the best college hockey team ever. The Terriers overwhelmingly “beat” the 2001 BC Eagles with nearly 80% of the vote. BU moves on to a second-round matchup with the 1985 RPI national champs.

Women’s Team
Six current skaters and five former Terriers were named to the 58-player roster for Canada’s Fall Festival. Current BU players invited: seniors Marie-Philip Poulin and Shannon Doyle, Junior Sarah Lefort, sophomore Samantha Sutherland and freshmen Victoria Bach and Rebecca Leslie. Former Terriers: Jenn Wakefield ('12) and Tara Watchorn ('12), 2014 Clarkson Cup champion Jenelle Kohanchuk ('13) and 2014 graduates and Hockey East First Team All-Stars Kaleigh Fratkin and Louise Warren.
