Looking back
Former BU captain Carl Corazzini, in his first season as head coach at St. Mark’s School, led the Lions to the Boys Prep Piatelli/Simmons Small School tournament championship, defeating Westminster, 3-1. Corazzini succeeded Scott Young at St. Mark’s after Young was named BU’s Director of Hockey Operations. The Marlets’ only goal was scored by BU 2016 recruit John McDermott.

Dexter School, coached by former Terrier Dan Donato, reached the prep Elite Eight championship game, losing to Salisbury.

Looking ahead
Four future Terriers were on the ice when the NTDP U18s faced off with Sioux Falls. In the U18s’ 8-2 win, 2015 recruit Jordan Greenway (photo) scored a goal and an assist while 2015 recruit Charlie McAvoy added a helper. 2016 recruit Clayton Keller, who leads the U17s in scoring, moved up and assisted on two goals in his U18 debut. 2016 recruit Kieffer Bellows scored his 27th goal for the Stampede.
2015 recruit Robert Carpenter has taken over the USHL goal scoring lead with a pair of goals in Sioux City’s weekend games against Muskegon. The former Austin Prep standout has 29 goals, including 10 in his last 11 games.

2015 recruit Maxim Letunov talks about having his NHL rights traded to Arizona, hitting the 100-career-point milestone and continuing his development at BU.

Women's Team

Quite a week for senior captain Marie Philip Poulin: named a finalist for the PattyKazmaier Memorial Award; unanimous selection as first-team HE All-Star; HE Defensive Forward of the Year; scored five goals and two assists to lead BU past Northeastern and BC to give the Terriers their fourth straight Hockey East tournament title; and registered her 100th career assist (a one-handed pass after being knocked to the ice).  Who else would be the conference Player of theWeek ?

Besides her two goals in the championship game vs. BC, Poulin nearly had a third with this little gem of a move

Sarah Lefort, Shannon Doyle and Kayla Tutino made Hockey East's list of top performers.
