Labor Day Linkorama

BU will be featured on two nationally broadcasted games on NBC Sports Network this season. The first will be the Nov. 7 match-up with Boston College at Conte Arena; the second will be on Jan. 3 when the Terriers have their first-ever meeting with Union College, the defending national champions. The full Terrier TV schedule is still being developed, but will include Webcasts of most home games on Terriers AllAccess as well as broadcasts on NESN and possibly other cable TV outlets.

The Foxboro Pro League championship was decided last Wednesday with Team Harlow, featuring Terrier captain Matt Grzelcyk and freshman Jack Eichel, topping Team McDonough, whose roster included ex-BU forward Charlie Coyle, 5-3. Also playing in the summer league were junior Danny O’Regan (photo), sophomores Robbie Baillargeon, Dalton MacAfee and Kevin Duane, freshman AJ Greer and former Terriers Sean Sullivan and Vinny Saponari.  Sullivan, who spent last season with Straubing in the German DEL, has returned to Germany this year, signing on with the Iserlohn Roosters.

Looking ahead
Sioux City finished the Junior Club World Cup in Ofa, Russia, with a bronze medal, defeating Dynamo Shinnik of Belarus, 4-3, in overtime. 2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter registered an assist in the third-place game to go with three goals scored earlier in the tournament. Discussing Carpenter and Adam Johnson, who are expected to lead the Musketeer offense this season, Coach Jay Varady noted: “Adam and Bobo are top-end guys for us. They had good summers in terms of off-ice training and they started the tournament ready to play. They are skilled players who make an impact on the game most of the nights they are in the lineup.”

The Musketeers have returned to Iowa to prepare for the USHL exhibition game schedule which begins this Friday.  Besides Carpenter, Terrier recruits who will play in the USHL this season are: Hank Crone (Omaha), Sean MacTavish (Waterloo), Maxim Letunov and Vas Kolias (Youngstown) and Jordan Greenway and Charles McAvoy (NTDP U-18's).

2015 recruit Liam Coughlin, who scored 18 goals and 27 assists in 53 regular season games (and another 13 points in the playoffs) for BCHL Vernon last season, had been expected to return to the Vipers for a second season. However, Providence Journal reporter Mark Divver reports that the 6-3 left wing from South Boston will instead stay closer to home and join the USPHL Premier Division South Shore Kings. Joining Coughlin on the Kings is former BU recruit Shane Starrett. The two previously were teammates at Catholic Memorial.

SSK alums who have gone on to play for BU include: Coyle, Matt Gilroy, Kevin Gilroy, Brian McConnell, Carl Corrazini, Jack Baker and Ryan Whitney.
