Looking back
Former Head Coach Jack Parker has been named the 2015 winner of the American Hockey Coaches Association’s John MacInnes Award. The AHCA announcement, which includes a Parker bio, notes:

Established by the AHCA in 1982 to honor former Michigan Tech coach, John MacInnes, this award recognizes those people who have shown a great concern for amateur hockey and youth programs. The recipients have had high winning percentages, as well as outstanding graduating percentages among their former players. The winners of this award have helped young men grow not only as hockey players, but more importantly, as men.

Former Terrier All-American Colby Cohen has rejoined the GMB Nottingham Panthers of the Elite Ice Hockey League in the UK. Cohen, who scored the overtime game-winner (video) for BU in the 2009 NCAA title game and led all Hockey East d-men in goals (14) a year later, played four games with the Panthers before moving on to play in Slovakia. In Nottingham, he’ll be reunited with former BU standout forward Chris Higgins, also a member of the 2009 championship team.

Matt Nieto scored his fourth goal of the season in the Sharks’ 5-2 loss to New Jersey
