Patriot Ledger interview with Greeley 
"I think BU’s in a great spot right now. I truly think they’re going to compete for championships for years to come.”
Greeley played a lead role in bringing top-level talent into the Terrier pipeline in his two seasons on Comm. Ave. You can find a list of all BU recruits, including newest commit Chad Krys, in the sidebar to the right. Our friends at BurntBoats (@BurntBoats) take it one step further with this chart projecting the Terrier rosters for the next few seasons.

Looking back
Former Terrier captain Chris Dyment has been named assistant coach for another BU, the Bentley University Falcons.  A second-team All-American in 1999-2000, he scored 72 points (20G, 52A) in his four seasons in Scarlet as part of three Beanpot championship teams and making two NCAA appearances. He played seven season of professional hockey, mostly in the AHL. During the past two seasons, he was head coach of the USPHL Elite New Hampshire Junior Monarchs.

● Career stats

The 14th Annual Travis Roy Foundation Whiffle Ball Tournament fundraiser set a new record with $546,023 raised, exceeding the previous high of $505,000 in 2013.

Former BU Coach Jack Parker joined his former player for the event in Essex, Vermont.

Established in 1997, the foundation’s mission is (1) to enhance the lives of individuals with spinal cord injuries and their families by providing adaptive equipment and (2) to find a cure through increased funding of research, resulting in self-reliance and the ability to be as independent as possible.  Travis Roy was a freshman forward at BU in the fall of 1995.  He was paralyzed after he crashed into the boards during his first shift in the Terriers home opener.
