 Looking ahead  
2016 recruit Kieffer Bellows continues to pile up the goals for Sioux Falls, registering his third hat trick (video) of the season, along with an assist, in the Stampede’s 7-0 rout of Lincoln on Saturday. Bellows now has 33 goals, one behind the league leaders. 29 of his goals have come in the last 38 games. The power forward from Edina, Minn., was profiled Friday on Hockey’s Future and discussed his choice to follow the NCAA route.
“I’ve always dreamed of playing college hockey, and I grew up watching the Gophers,” Bellows admitted.

But the University of Minnesota didn’t make the cut.  Neither did the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks, who chose Bellows in the seventh round of the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. Instead, Bellows committed to Boston University for the 2016-17 season.

“I was lucky enough to make the team here, and it has been a privilege to play for Coach Eades,” said Bellows. “As soon as I stepped on Boston’s campus, I fell in love with it. I love the style of Coach [David] Quinn, he’s one of those coaches who will sit down with you and focus on every single guy.”
2017 recruit Kole Sherwood, playing his first USHL game, scored a goal for Youngstown in its 5-1 win over Muskegon. Youngstown also received a pair of assists from 2015 recruit Maxim Letunov, who now has a 23-38-61 line. Sherwood, who helped lead the Ohio Junior Blue Jackets to the Tier 1 Elite League 18U championship with 22 goals and 26 assists in 31 games, is on the affiliate list of the Phantoms whose roster includes his older brother, Kieffer.

2015 recruit Robert Carpenter scored his 32nd goal in Sioux City’s 4-1 loss to Waterloo. The former Austin Prep standout now has 60 points, one behind Letunov, and stands at sixth in the USHL scoring race.

Hank Crone, a 2016 or 2017 recruit now in his first season with USHL Omaha, discussed his adjustment to junior A and his reasons for committing to BU. 

Looking back
Former BU captain and All-American Kevin Shattenkirk, who recently returned to the St. Louis lineup following abdominal surgery, tallied his 35th assist in the Blues 2-1 win over Chicago. It equaled a career-best set last season and brought Shattenkirk's point total to 43, two shy of last year's 45, despite missing six weeks of action.

Women's Team
A trio of Terriers earned silver medals at the IIHF Women’s World Championships. Current captain and first-team All-American Marie-Philip Poulin and former Terriers Jennifer Wakefield and Tara Watchorn represented Team Canada, which lost to Team USA in the final, 7-5.
