Sunday Linkorama

In the NCAA’s Frozen Four’s Finest tournament, BU’s 2009 national champions advanced to the semifinals after defeating the 1985 Rensselaer  Engineers in a fan vote. Next up in the competition is the 1970 undefeated Cornell team.

The Hockey News reviewed freshman Jack Eichel’s one goal, one assist performance in Thursday night’s All-American Prospects Game. The broadcast will air again today on NHL Network at 1 p.m. ET.

Looking ahead
2015 recruit Maxim Letunov (photo) scored a goal and 2016 recruit Vas Kolias assisted on another for Youngstown but the Phantoms were doubled up, 4-2, by the NTDP U-18's.  Letunov, a second-round draft pick of St. Louis in the 2014 entry draft, is in his second season with the Phantoms, having scored 43 points last season. Kolias, who starred for Chicago Mission 18U last season as a 16 year old, was acquired during the off-season during the Indiana Ice dispersal draft.

On Friday night, 2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter (photo, white jersey) assisted on three goals in the Sioux City 4-3 overtime win over Omaha to open the USHL regular season.  Last year, the left-shot center led Austin Prep to the Massachusetts Super 8 championship game with 24 goals and 13 helpers in 22 games. He also tallied nine points in nine games with the Musketeers.

Also in USHL action on Friday, 2016 recruit Clayton Keller assisted on the NTDP U-17's first goal in a 5-2 loss to Muskegon.

2017 recruit David Farrance scored twice and assisted on two more as the Syracuse Stars routed Bay State, 11-0, in USPHL 16U action.  With his four points for the undefeated Stars, the left-shot defenseman from Victor, N.Y., moved into the league scoring lead with a 10-8-18 line in eight league games.

Looking back
New England Hockey Journal reports on former Terrier captain, NHL standout and Olympian Kevin Shattenkirk whose goal is to elevate his game to Norris level. A second-team All-American in 2008-09, Shattenkirk had a career-best 45 points last season for St. Louis.

Former Terrier John McCarthy has been assigned to AHL Chicago by the St. Louis Blues.  McCarthy, a co-captain on BU’s 2009 national championship team, had spent five years with the San Jose organization, playing in 87 NHL games, before signing with the Blues in the off-season. Former Terrier Ryan Whitney remains in the St. Louis camp on a professional tryout contract.

Women’s Team
Behind two goals from sophomore Maddie Elia and one from junior Kayla Tutino, the Terriers blanked Queens University, 3-0, in yesterday’s exhibition game at Walter Brown Arena. Three BU netminders, sophomores Victoria Hanson and Mia Becker, and freshman Erin O’Neil, playing a period apiece, stopped all 32 shots by the Gaels.

BU skated without six players who are in Calgary at a Hockey Canada event.  The three-time defending Hockey East champions open the regular season next weekend in Minneapolis, taking on St. Cloud and Minnesota.
