More honors for ERod; Eichel does Bristol UPDATED

Senior assistant captain Evan Rodrigues, the Most Outstanding Player in the NCAA Northeast Regional, was named Hockey East’s Warrior Hockey Player of the Week, the third time he’s earned the award in the past two months. It was also the eighth time a Terrier has been named POW this season. Juniors Danny O’Regan and Matt Lane were named to the weekly list of top performers.

Freshman Jack Eichel, who leads the nation in scoring with 67 points, visited ESPN studios in Bristol, Conn., (along with teammate AJ Greer) and was featured throughout Tuesday night’s SportsCenter, doing hockey highlights  and the Top 10, and shooting pucks (video) with John Buccigross, Steve Levy and Barry Melrose.

College Hockey News has named Eichel its 2014-15 Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year, marking the first time a player has earned both honors in the same season.

It was 20 year ago today...
No, not Sgt. Pepper. On April 1, 1995, BU won its fourth NCAA championship defeating Maine, 6-2, in Providence. All-American forward Chris O'Sullivan, with two goals, was named Most Outstanding Player. Next week, we'll publish another of our Terrier Tales, chronicling the 1994-95 season, which brought BU a triple crown of championships: Beanpot, Hockey East and NCAA. 
A quick look back

Looking ahead
In its Futures Issue, The Hockey News ranked 2016 recruit Kieffer Bellows #8 for the 2016 draft. One of the youngest players in the USHL, Bellows is fifth in goal-scoring with 29 (two behind 2015 recruit Robert Carpenter). Scouting report: Seeing what he is doing in the USHL at his age is special. Creative, dynamic, skilled guy and he’s fearless.

Looking back
Nick Bonino’s 15th goal of the season was the game-winner as Vancouver defeated St. Louis, 4-1 on Monday. The former BU standout center also earned some bragging rights over his BU roommate and Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. Last night, Bonino recorded an assist in regulation and a goal in the shootout as the Canucks edged Nashville, 5-4.

Former Terrier Sahir Gill was named ECHL Player of the Week for March 23-29 after scoring five goals—including two game-winners and a hat trick—and four assists.
